Prostate cancer chronology

Background:  20% of all men age 55 have prostate cancer.  By the time a man reaches the age of 70 that increases to approximately 50% and close to 100% by the age of 90.  This is known because when men die from other causes, it is discovered at the autopsy that they had prostate cancer.  Prostate cancer is extremely serious for a young man and generally is not imminently life threatening for a man over 65 unless Continue Reading…

Doctor – Weigh Your Words Carefully

The manner in which a physician discloses to a patient the diagnosis of cancer can, in and of itself, determine whether the patient will die or survive. The physician can instill hope and the desire to try to fight and be part of a winning team or can cause the patient to want to do nothing and wait for the inevitable end. A telephone call by a nurse or even the doctor stating, “You have cancer” can be totally devastating. The patient Continue Reading…

HELP is Only a Phone Call Away

The trauma of being diagnosed with cancer is enormous. All of us who have been there know it. The questions that race through our minds, even while the physician is still trying to explain the situation, are unending. Will I die? Will I be an invalid? Will I have terrible pain?
