Brief Outline: John's problematic urination led to a PSA test and DRE. A trans-rectal biopsy detected cancer and he decided to have brachytherapy but a later trans-perineal biopsy indicated more advanced cancer and he then had a robotic laparoscopic prostatectomy. He later had a 'male sling' to treat his incontinence.
Background: John is a married writer with one adult child and his ethnic background is White British.
