Getting a prostate examination (DRE) for the first time may sound like a horrible experience. In reality, a prostate examination is simple, quick and painless. It is certainly better to know if there is a prostate problem than not know. But some like to make a great drama of it all.
Prostate biopsy results were due from my TURP operation and I had an appointment with the urologist. The most important point of this was to get the results of the histology, that is, the testing of the tissue samples from the TURP. I had also been asked to have a psa test taken a week before the appointment.
