Were you able to get your husband to consult a doctor? He is one stubborn guy. He probably endures a whole lot of discomforts and pain in his situation, but he still refuses to heed the signs. Well, you could try getting him to use a DIY test kit like Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) Blood Spot Test Kit of ZRT, which can determine the level of PSA in his system. A high level of PSA indicates Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or enlargement of the prostate gland, or even prostate cancer. He could take the kit with him wherever he goes, and test at his time of convenience. Although, a doctor's consultation would be the better option. But, hopefully when he sees the result on the little test kit, it will encourage him to go seek a doctor's opinion. Don't give up trying and always be strong for him.View Thread
