Become educated on Prostate Cancer


I can’t express to you how highly important it is to visit your doctor often. If you don’t have one then I suggested you start looking. I know many feel uncomfortable or feel there is no reason for you to go but there is. Many people walk around looking healthy and feeling great until that one day when your body is telling you that something is wrong. You know what is worse, when you finally make that appointment and you find out that things could of been prevented if you came in previously.

Over a year ago, my only brother went to see his doctor because of not feeling well. After some testing and blood work, he was told that he was entering stage one of Prostate Cancer. My brother was not only in shock but felt devastated. Here he sat and looked puzzled with what am I going to do now look on his face.

Did you know that in most cases detecting Prostate Cancer in the early stages can truly help you in the long run?

Once it’s detected you can start planing your medical needs and treatment.

Prolaris is a genetic test for prostate cancer from Myriad Genetics Laboratories that combines traditional risk factors with molecular assessment. Prolaris is the only test that measures how fast prostate cancer cells are dividing. The information obtained from this test greatly impacts the treatment choices that someone diagnosed with Prostate cancer would choose.

In this lifetime, I have already seen many of my relatives die from different kinds of Cancer. That disease can spread into different forms that you didn’t even know was possible.

I mean just the other day, I got word that a friend of the family has Prostate Cancer and he is in stage 4. How sad and so unfortunate that his life is now turned into such a world-wind of terminal cancer.

The sad part is most of us wait until it’s too late to say we love you to someone. Telling your love one that not only you need them here with you but you will be by their side through this tragic medical condition.

Did you know 1.2 million biopsies a year lead to 240,000 prostate cancer diagnoses and 30,000 deaths? Prostate cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer related death in the United States. Since women tend to take the dominant role in health care and screening in their homes, I beg of you to become more educated about Prostate cancer and in turn, educated your loved ones including your husband, father, brothers, uncles and nephews.

    Such an important message. I am pretty good at keeping up with my physicals, but I was shocked when my Dr told me I hadn't had bloodwork in 3 years! It is so easy to get lax and take it for granted.

    The prostate cancer awareness blog should be share by every family. No one in my family has died of prostate cancer, but the chemicals in the environment has changed since my grandfathers. Eating right and getting a check up is definitely mandatory for every male over the age of 40.
  • Jeanine

    I'm glad you brought this up. It's very important. I forced my husband to go for a physical a few months ago. He hadn't had one except about 9 years if not 10 years ago! I go often myself, and have for years. Prostate cancer is a huge concern so I'm glad you are bringing it up, and there's more awareness surrounding it!

    Everyone needs to be informed and educated about the different types of cancer. Too many people are dying every single day from this horrible disease.

    My Father is currently going through colon and liver cancer. He's had it for 10 years and is still on chemo treatments. After his diagnosis I got really concerned with my own health, and i take it that much more seriously now.
  • Yona Williams

    A 1 in 6 person diagnosis for prostate cancer is pretty high. A college basketball coach around here beat prostate cancer, and he does a lot for spreading awareness in my city, so I can say that people around here are well-educated about it…but I bet they could still need a little more urging. I think a lot of guys feel 'embarrassed' to get checked.
  • Carolyn Bunch

    Thank you for such a great and informative post. I still am trying to get my husband to go in for a check up. I will show him this post and try to get him to get serious about his prostate health.
  • April Decheine

    Great information, I want my husband and I to get a colonoskopy, not sure even how to spell that, but I know it is really important. We try to do a lot of flushing and eat foods that are good for our colon.
  • Erin Kennedy

    I have never been much concerned about prostate cancer, but I should learn more about it for my husband. I don't think you can be too young to at least learn the facts. This is a great giveaway too! Who couldn't use that kind of money!
