Hey Simon. Did not understand correctly I think. He ordered a blood test for PSA, but he said the test was not too reliable?.

About being thinking on HIV things only, easy boy. I am exactly the same... You are not alone. :)

hello simon

psa test, on there own as lis says, are not diagnostic, ie they require further tests to put the results into context.
some more information:

if you are a uk citizen, you (or your insurance) shouldnt be having to pay to see the greatest hiv doctors in the uk...the brilliance of the nhs, it is accessible for free?

enjoy HK
