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.
This is my third cancer, Testicular, pancreatic, now this.

It is either operation to remove, considering the robotic
would love feed back
Thank you for the comments, no matter who you are or your situation in life, this news punches you in the face.
I am 55yo, 185lbs decent health, spent 23 years in the Army, infantry.
Had my biopsy on May 25th, 12 samples 6 on the right side came back Pos.
I have been going to different Doctors, just went to get info on Seeds, going to Loma Linda to talk about Proton.
I got treated the last two times at the Naval Med Center in San D, CA. I am going to call and get an appt. there. The Doctor that did my Pancreatic cancer is still there, hoping he can give some un biased advice.
Since you've already had two cancers and a "pre-cancer" prostate by age 55 you should probably get your DNA done to see if you've got some genetic issues that might be helped by some of the latest drugs if you are going to get anything done on your prostate problem.
