« Statesman Journal endorsement of Romney: pathetic editorial | Main | Why this election is an epistemological watershed »

Brian, this is interesting to me because I had a "positive" PSA test a couple of years ago. My brother had told me he had a positive test result prior to mine, a year or so before, and told me of the biopsy in gruesome detail. When my doctor informed me of elevated levels compared to prior test he said he would recommend me to a specialist. I asked if that meant needle biopsy and he said yes. I informed him that my brother had told me what that entails and that I would die before having to go through that! I had also read about the abnormally high false positives found in PSA tests, so discovered (on the internet) a couple of causes for false positives and implemented them such that the next test was back to normal again!
