    Thanks for your help, both personal and on e-mail.  Dr Bahn has declared me cancer free after 2 years   of watchful waiting, including 3  coloroscopies.There is no cancer ,  but evidence of BPH problems over 50 yrs.  Was scheduled for a biopsy by a local Urologist, but I did research , found you and Dr. Bahn , and have not had a biopsy.  Thanks again.                                                  Dr Bill Reeves
