Rate this question

Question

I been going to MD Anderson cancer center in Houston. This place is city in it self and over 22,000 cancer outpatience everyday and even has nice hotel and bar :rolleyes: . I Started going to MD a year ago and the DOC's explain to me about psa cell's and its mutation cell's. From the psa cancer cell it can and will mutation to another type cancer like brain, lung, bone, bladder, etc. Thanks again AO!:angry: It move from the prostate to the Lymph nodes which there are 1000's of LN thru out the body. If you do not have a prostate and your psa is going up. Seek help!The androgen deprivation therapy shot work for me for about six months, it should of lasted for years in most case. Oh but not me :wacko: . My psa cancer is mutating to another form and it's to small see. They started a different hormone to hope it will slow it down.

My point is to all VET's please get your prostate check every year.

PS that goes for all Vet's!

SP4:

Thanks for the heads up I am sure it could help another Veteran. MD Andersen is one of the best so I believe that you are getting good treatment. My prayers for your recovery.

Pete

Veterans deserve real choice for their health care.

Been without mine now since June 15 2009 due to Agent Orange. It really changes your life and the way you do things. It is good to know these things because you do not hear a lot from the VA. I will keep a close check since you let us know about the mutation even after the cancer surgery and they say you are cancer free.

I so much ask! I feel that change in the way I do thing and it not good. I hope you are seeing somebody beside Va. They act like it's ok to have little PSA. VA have said don't remove prostate with high counts. WRONG. MY MD Anderson Doctor's said if you don't have a prostate then .1 or .2 psa count means that you have possible cancer and you should watch it every 6 to 8 weeks. You should seek a doctor that specialist in Urology or your primary doctor for psa test.
