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.

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.
