I wouldn't offer the finger thing because my finger isn't long enough to be of any use for the purpose. And also wouldn't have a PSA test at present - I've yet to pick up a case of prostate cancer with a random screening PSA, though it's useful when someone also has symptoms. Whereas I *have* seen a fair number of men being lumbered with investigations, follow-up and anxiety because we can't ignore a marginally high PSA result.

Got something to say?
