This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
I'll ask him the next time I'm speaking with him for more details. The cancer had obviously broken out so an operation was not in the cards. He was in his early 60's when diagnosed. His much younger brother got checked as a precaution at that time and had surgery in the very nick of time. About a year later I was diagnosed with low grade prostate cancer and had it yanked. Testing showed that my cancer was more aggressive than had been thought so I dodged a bullet.
