I'm 38 and I may have prostate cancer. If I do, and it is malignant, and I choose to do nothing about it, and I happen to die because of it; what symptoms will I experience? What level of pain and where would I feel it? I suppose it will be even harder yet to urinate (may elect to have catheter inserted permanently). I'm not afraid of dying, but I am a big baby when it comes to pain. The nice thing is that I already have a pain doctor for my other chronic pain. So, I will be covered if prostate cancer spreads and I experience a lot of pain. My dad had prostate cancer and had his gland removed. I don’t want to do that and I don't want radiation. If it is my time it is my time and I'll make the choice to pass on. However, I'd like to know what advanced prostate cancer will be like symptom-wise Thanks all, Doug
