Mutation Of Prostate Cancer Thanks To Ao

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.

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.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
