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.

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.
