The Dreaded Needle Biopsy

Men of a certain age! OK having  PD MIGHT predispose you to having prostate cancer (just ask comedian Billy Conolly about that!) So I go in for the yearly check of the old man gland and the nice, shiny new urologist finds a “nodule” on the surface of the prostate. Time for the dreaded needle biopsy! He will numb you up and take 12 shots at the little bugger with needles. Then you have to wait for the results a week or so… (I’m not stressed, REALLY I’M NOT STRESSED!) Here’s my fearful imagination of what it was going to be like (I wimped out totally and took a pain pill BEFORE hand.)
