Prostate Cancer Report

I had blogged recently on the fact that my brother-in-law had found he had Prostate Cancer. His PSA reading were not as high as mine and his Gleason score was low. His Cancer was not as aggressive as mine was. He had Radioactive Seeds implanted in the Prostate. He is doing well at this point and does not have the road to recovery that I had.

This treatment was much less invasive then the Radical Prostatectomy that I had. Dr. Zippe said that he would have done the same procedure as he had done on me if he was to do it today. The way Prostate Cancer is controlled is based on your condition.

Prostate Cancer is very dangerous to men so a PSA test is an easy way to insure your health. If you are over 40 talk to your doctor.
