    I am 9 years into a fight with Prostate cancer. Not necessarily in order.
    Know your doctor better than you know your brother.
    Find out the status of every treatment in any phase test trials.
    Have an attitude about it never ever think, speak a negative thought.
    And to me the most important thing is a sense of humor and lots of laughter about all things and don’t be a WHY ME CRY BABY)!!!
    Make the doctor justify what he says and then go the the NET and get other opinions. One cry baby i emailed with was 71 years old and worried about his sex life. I told him, “If your 70 years old and worried about your sex life you have been doing wrong to about 50 years”!

    Bottom line you get Prostate Cancer today and with the progress that is being made you ain’t gonna die of it, IF THE DOCTOR TREATS YOU WITH THE BEST CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. See Dr. Tomas Beer of OSHU and the 4 levels of treatment paper he wrote.
