After radiation at Loma Linda U in CA I was told we (group finishing radiation in the next week or so- about 20 of us) still needed to have our prostate checked even if we don't have one. That was about 4 yrs ago and I have yet to have a doctor indicate I need to do a digital exam on me. Has anyone had a digital exam since prostate removal?
The doc at LLU told me I still needed to be checked to be sure the tissue was smooth- no lumps or pumps.
I have been wondering, if it is important, why no other doctor has suggested the good o' finger exam.
