Prostate Cancer Experiences

Recommended Posts

My husband was diagnosed with testicular cancer at Barnsley Hospital.  The day after being diagnosed he was operated on and for the next 5 years he was under the care of a consultant who came from Weston Park to Barnsley.  Throughout this 5 year period he regularly had tumor marker tests sent to the Hallamshire Hospital.  Time and time again these test results were late coming back and also wrong !    After a while the consultant had had enough and he insisted the tests be sent to Charing Cross Hospital in London.  From then on, the test results came back quicker from London than from Sheffield and they were accurate.

Mind you this was 32 years ago but it sounds like they are still slow,  hopefully they are more accurate now.

Thankfully with the skill and speed of the surgeons, my husband has been clear of cancer ever since.
