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.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
