    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.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”

    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

Bigjim-if this happened- you would appear to be eligible for CRSC-Combat Related Special COmpensation:

Also there has been much discussion on this type of comp at Military.com:

http://www.military.com/benefits/military-...al-compensation

I suggest you find in the Schedule of ratings , 38 CFR -at hadit- what level of rating the prostrate cancer should be found in,based on your medical evidence.

First of all, if this were to happen, you would be receiving SMC (Special Monthly Compensation) because you would have one disability at 100% and additional disabilities the equal to 60% or more. I think this is the "S" award. I'm not sure how much this is in addition to the 100% rate.

Second, it all depends if these disabilities are due to combat or not, if you were retired with 20 years of service, or if you retired before the 20 years due to disability ect...

There are just too many variables to be able to give a definate answer. As Berta stated, you might want to check out military.com. There they have numerous discussions on this topic.

I was thinking the SMC too- as Vike did- but the reality is that prostate cancer can be caught in time- I have seen staggered Prostrate cancer awards and believe that the VA can even find it is treated to the point it is not disabling.

I could be wrong and would need to check this out-

I saw one BVA case for prostrate cancer where the vet was only given a "0" SC award. I guess they treated it promptly and he had no residuals.

Then again I have a vet friend they buggered big time years ago for prostrate cancer which spread elsewhere and they pay him 100% rate under Sec 1151.(malpractice)
