Prostate Cancer - Still A Huge Killer In Australia

I am going to admit. I am overdue for my 100,000 kilometre service.

No, not for my car. For me.

I have never been one to be super keen to go and rush out and see a doctor and usually I do when I really feel that I need to. That crazy feeling is when I feel that, naaaaaaaaaaah, she'll be right mate, I will see a Doc later. I'm crazy yes, those crazy feelings, I am finally gotten over that.

But when you have kids, your philosophy of your personal needs changes. Mine certainly did and I visit doctors far more frequent now due to the fact that;

a) As much as I want to believe, I am not fucking indestructible &

b) I'm 45 now and I am in the candidate age to be checked up for Prostate and ensure there are no issues.

Now, hang on, I know some fella's are thinking, OK, I know that gland is there and it's required when I produce semen and have special cuddle time with my significant other. But I don't need it, because. (You may think so due to) I've had The Snip. Or, I don't have any plans for more children. Or, my special cuddle time is only Wednesdays, on my birthday and Christmas (or anniversary).

Well, guess what bucko, whether you use that internal death star or not, cancer doesn't give a flying and may decide to affect yours. Doesn't matter about prostate usage, or not. But it doesn't have to be a scary scenario to get a check on it and make sure your loved ones feel secure you've had yours looked at (when age appropriate)

Also, knowing that I am the mega celebrity here (to my family, my daughter & wife and those 17 readers of this blog) I came across one well detailed article at Laparoscopic Urology Australia which pointed out to me that other mega celebrities have had or been treated for, prostate cancer.

So, know you know, when you reach a certain age, you mere mortal fella's, get checked out and ensure your looking after your health. I know I will be getting mine checked during my 100,000 service.
