At 47 I was fit , busy at work and a busy dad to my 3 kids. I never dreamed of what was about to unfold. I had a cause to have a blood test for something and my GP thought it would be a good idea to have a PSA done since I had not had one previously. That blood test turned out to save my life. After seeing my GP  to get the results, I was sent to see a urologist ASAP due to an elevated PSA. I  saw my urologist  24 hours later and along with the physical examination, he recommended I have a prostate biopsy. I didn’t hesitate. A couple of weeks later I had the biopsy, the result being a Gleason Score of 7 .

My name is Franco. I’m 49 and was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in October 2011.

I had a robotic assisted radical prostatectomy at Peter Mac Hospital in March of this year. Since then I’ve recovered well with no side effects that usually follow this type of surgery. I’m back riding my push bike, running and keeping fit. During the past football season I coached Under 9’s in Rowville and am also a keen footballer.

I would love to play in the Legends Game as I think I am a good example that Prostate Cancer is not an old man’s disease. I put up the argument that it can strike you in your forties but with early diagnosis and a positive frame of mind, you can beat the disease. Be vigilant about your Prostate even if you are under 50 and GET TALKING TO YOUR GP.
