Its normal to have those feelings of anxiety before your psa test! I still do and I'm almost at the 2 year mark. Let us know your result and we will all be hopping for a good result on the test!

I agree with Lewvino. I still have those feelings, too. In fact, when they're drawing the blood, I stare intently as it goes into the vial trying to see if I can determine anything with my naked eyes. Of course, I can't but it doesn't stop me from trying.
Keeping my fingers crossed for another zero for you, mattman!

All will be OK.
Do not be anxious. Enjoy and go out with your family.

Good luck tomorrow Joe. Say hi to Dr. Eastham for me. My appointment is July 13th. I am sure all will be good. Let us know how you make out. I'll be thinking of you and wishing you good results.
Take care,
