PROSTRATE PROBLEMS UPDATE 01: One man in six will eventually be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Many experience other bothersome problems like benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), also called enlarged prostate which affects a larger percentage of men than prostate cancer does. Those who have had prostate cancer treatment frequently experience incontinence and in some cases impotence. Aside from cancer there are other prostatic, urinary or bladder problems we are subject to as we age. Men with elevated PSA, in their forties, or with suspected Prostate Cancer or have been diagnosed need to source information on their condition and treatment options. Support groups are an ideal source of such information. They are a place where one can meet with peers, discuss personal problems and benefit from the experiences of others. A listing by state of these groups is available at www.phoenix5.org/supportgroups.html. For those who do not or cannot attend meetings or want to maintain their privacy, similar support can be found through websites such as www.ustoowichita.org which can be located by entering the word “Prostrate Support Group” or any variation thereof into an Internet search engine like Google. With the help of such websites you can become knowledgeable enough to recognize potential symptoms and, along with your physician, be prepared for early diagnosis and treatment offering the best possibility of a cure.

Prostate cancer is an Agent Oragne presumptive disease. If I get it you bet I am going to file a claim.

If you live to your 80's John there is a 75% chance you will have it. For most it is a slow moving watch and see problem. For a few it is a rapid disease that needs quick attention.

For me its another problem with the slow and haphazzard care given by the VA.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
