Title: Regarding myself and cancer
Post by: Chick on March 22, 2012, 09:32:06 AM
it's been brought to my attention that there was a thread about me having colon cancer...not true.

While I don't share most of my private life for obvious reasons, I appreciate the concern from people in my well being

As most of you know, my father recently passed away ( Dec 26) from advanced prostate cancer...he was diagnosed  about 13 years ago

One year ago, I was diagnosed with the beginning stages of prostate cancer, and the Gleason score indicated it was pretty aggressive...just like my fathers.

My father elected to go the radiation route, as it was the newest treatment back then...obviously, it didn't work

My choice was fairly obvious, prostate removal, with the newest technology...divinci robot assisted radical prostatectomy...which I did.

Surgery was successful, I'm cancer free ( for now)....and a series of follow up PSA's will let us know if I remain cancer free...

I thank God I was able to heal quickly in order to help my father and family through  what would be, his last 6 months with us...

First PSA resulted in an undetectable score ( best case scenario)....I'm due for another one now....

All good boys....

I mean the way we are living now plus medical science means that in 50 years when the average 40yr old is 90, the quality of life is going to be far greater.Theres even talk that there could be a way to reverse the aging process and live forever (assuming no accidents) within the next 50 years.

Noting the fact that our global elite wants to decline the growth of human population by bullshit vaccines, chemicals in foods, drinks, soil and air, building more and more underground bunkers for themselves and developing absurd bioweapons that are 1000 times more leathal than any nuclear weapon, and also wanting to replace all the tanks, helicopters and jets and whatever with automated AI drones, wanting to make all the human population chipped etc etc. makes me wonder the probability of your statement.

Because what you say is completely true, they could make people immortal right now, but all these cures, all these super technologies and glamour are not for you, it's only for the chosen ones, super educated minority that has no desire to share anything.

HONEST QUESTION BOB.  What is lost/gained from prostate removal?  I mean how does it affect your life afterwards, what types of things do you have to worry about.  Why do we even need prostates?

What is lost is the ability to have kids...it can affect your life immensely if the surgery doesn't go well, or more importantly, if the cancer had progressed beyond the prostate

Luckiily, my surgeon happened to be a guy who pioneered some of the procedure they use today...the key is not beating up the nerve, the more damage to it, the more likely you are to have incontinence issues and you would be shooting pool with a rope trying to have sex...

yes, indeed my friend....

Early detection is the key...I have been diligent in having the yearly exam since I turned 40...that said, because of my dads history, it was more essential that I went ahead with the biopsy since the PSA score wasn't THAT high...in normal circumstance, he would have sent me on my way till next year...but I went to the same Dr. As my father....

Both age And history...

I just happened to be due for my yearly test...and since I was taking my father to one of his various visits at the time, decided to just have his dr. Do it as he had been my dads dr for many years...

at 34 you're still a few years away from needing a yearly test...

Are you kiddin me - I bet poor old Bob is missing the good wood! Sorry to hear about the medical issues - and hopefully the tackle is working - even if it wasn't I would be telling everybody it still goes as stiff as Iron.

.. and this is what gets me about bodybuilders who feign an interest in health and fitness, yet their weight training is superficial - a real trainer should at least know the basics of human male anatomy - if you dont what your prostate does or even why you have one - well, it might be time to take some time off the gym and read a few books, there are other parts of the body that matter other than Biceps.

any getbigger who's in their mid-30's should have a Prostate check-up as part of their yearly Doctor's visit......I will include that in my next check-up.......I had a friend of mine who passed away 2yrs ago from colon cancer.....the scary thing is, he looked healthy and lifted weights with us all the time and there was no dramatic signs that he was sick, until a thourough routine check-up delivered the devastating news to him.

Glad you feel good and all is well - since you said you cannot have more kids are you thinking of adopting second child? I can tell you I am adopted so I know first hand how much good you can do with that - think about it.

I swear we handle more cancer patients than any othe illness in my unit.  Some of the people i take care of have such agressive cancers that they may have only found out a month ago without any signs or symptoms only to be told they have a few months to live. We are not getting healthier people. Living longer does not mean a better quality of life with some if the stuff we deal with these days

Do you find the cancer sufferers are in general very nice people? Both my aunties are nurses and I used to work with a chemo specialist, and they all said that a majority of people with cancer were the nicest, easiest people in the hospital.

And nothing against Bob (because he' seems like a cool guy and I wish him nothing but the best), but they also said, in aggressive cases, it was usually those few who were total assholes that would make it through - like you really needed to have a "fuck everyone, it's all about me" attitude. Thought it was interesting but not too sure how much to read into it.

generally yes. Most people remain optomistic about their prognosis even facing death.  I dont know how to make this sound right if u even could but one of the "positives" ive seen what cancer does for people is it forces you to re-elvaluate what and whos truly important in your life. Cancer patients seem to value those precious things that we take for granted.

unlikely. In fact more research points to androgens as possibly playing a protective or preventative role. Estrogen is more likely the culprit. In bobs case most likely genetics/family hx/ race play the  biggest parts in his situation.

For anyone interested theres a ton of projects expected to have big results witihin the next 10 years, 2 off the top of my head are one where they are working on reversing aging in mice then to humans and another, a russian Billionaire has hundreds working on transferring a human brain in to robot body, crazy but true.

Anyone interested in big things comming (some if these come gradually and look like a "usual stuff", like a cell phone does look to us now, some hit with a bang and it's all different from then on, like internet.. Many ppl doesn't realize what some of these "hits" will be.. may very well transform the humanity as we know.): SENS (Aubrey De Grey), the manhattan project, Ray Kurzweil (u can watch a movie "Transcedent man", or "To age or not to age", some of Michio Kaku stuff.. Plenty more, but these are good for a start.
 It's funny how most of the society are so indulged in NOW that thay aren't even remotely aware of big things like these evolving right under their noses.
 These who are 20-30 now, can reasonably expect to be in a physical-biological shape of a current healthy 40yo, when they'll hit 60, 30 years later.  So do will life expectancy increase (and not at a cost of a poor health like it's thought often. The actual health-span gains will be an actual cullprit.).
 Now, other technologies.. I personally believe cancer won't be a bigger issue than a regular flu is right now, after like 10years fro now, well 15 at the worst case scenario, so most of you who'll manage to survive won't really face cancer as a "deadly dissease" like it is now. It will be a "common cold" (people still die from flu, but you aren't reevaluating your life choices when you are diagnosed with one, eh?).

The real obstacle and target is aging. It's a main "dissease", that triggers MOST of well known disseases of "old age" (they are called so on purpose). Cancer too actually, as getting cancer at a young age, if healthy and no genome fuck ups is pretty rare, due to a young immune system that gets rid of cancer cells immediately. When the global tides will turn towards a real war on aging (rather than on it's consequences) the world will be very very different place than it is now (well at least for some people.. as just like now, when some are still dieing from starvation, some are living in abundance, so you;ll have to have some decent money to have your stem cell pools "refilled", telomeres "reset", maybe some organs replaces, intracellular junk cleaned, some epigenetic patterns restored/chromatin strcutures of your DNA rearranged, etc..)..
 Educate yourself, don't be a person of "inertia" like many are and you may realize that world is changing on a fast pace, a lot faster than many imagine.

it's been brought to my attention that there was a thread about me having colon cancer...not true.

While I don't share most of my private life for obvious reasons, I appreciate the concern from people in my well being

As most of you know, my father recently passed away ( Dec 26) from advanced prostate cancer...he was diagnosed  about 13 years ago

One year ago, I was diagnosed with the beginning stages of prostate cancer, and the Gleason score indicated it was pretty aggressive...just like my fathers.

My father elected to go the radiation route, as it was the newest treatment back then...obviously, it didn't work

My choice was fairly obvious, prostate removal, with the newest technology...divinci robot assisted radical prostatectomy...which I did.

Surgery was successful, I'm cancer free ( for now)....and a series of follow up PSA's will let us know if I remain cancer free...

I thank God I was able to heal quickly in order to help my father and family through  what would be, his last 6 months with us...

First PSA resulted in an undetectable score ( best case scenario)....I'm due for another one now....

actually, many docs advocate HRT as part of the therapy...I rule nothing out these days.

I've been on HRT for the better part of three years. When my doctor diagnosed my prostate cancer last January, he had me immediately stop the testosterone cypionate injections. Recently, I was advised to stop taking DHEA too.

Incidentally, I had another PSA in February as part of my annual physical exam. In one month after stopping the testosterone cypionate my PSA went from 9.7 to 6.1. I see my urologist in May. I will be scheduling the Da Vinci robotic prostatectomy then. I am anxious to see if my PSA continues to fall between now and then and what he has to say about this.

A couple of years ago, I had a cancerous growth on the bottom of my foot. Most of it was excised at the doctor's office to send to the lab for testing. What remained eventually disappeared and so the planned radiation was deemed unnecessary. That was a really weird situation which my doctors cannot explain to me.

say what?! I didn't read the whole thread, but I'd definitely say you aren't going to find many doctors recommending androgens for anyone with prostate cancer. Androgens fuel prostate cancer cell growth. That's why ANTI-androgens are a treatment for prostate cancer. Most docs would be reluctant to even recommend HRT in someone with low testosterone who has a history of prostate cancer.

Sorry to hear about the prostate CA, and I wish you all the best, but I'd say steroids absolutely accelerate prostate cancer, and you could just as easily argue that your prostate cancer may never have manisted itself clinically had you not used steroids. Many prostate cancers are indolent and there are patients we don't even recommend treatment for. With routine PSA screening and minus the steroids your cancer may have ultimately been discovered decades from now at a similarly low-risk stage, but you would have spared yourself all the potential side effects of treatment. Again, I truly wish you all the best, but I think this is one of those areas where steroids actually are bad.

Finasteride has been linked to more aggressive prostate cancers...

Can you cite some studies which bear this theory out? I took Proscar and later the generic Finasteride for many years to treat benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). It was my understanding from my doctor that Finasteride, if anything, helped prevent prostate cancer. I stopped taking this medicine because I read that it also can cause ED. These days, I substitute Saw Palmetto instead.

There is the doctor's finger up your butt test, which most of us don't much care for. One's blood is tested for it's prostate specific androgen (PSA) levels. When they climb, that can indicate a problem. PSA tests are not absolute as many things can affect the results. However, a better test is not yet available. If the doctor suspects there is an issue, he will recommend you have a needle biopsy of the prostate. A dozen or more samples are taken from the prostate gland using a specialized tool which is inserted through the anus. This test is not fun! However, dying from prostate cancer would be worse.

I have had a total of four biopsies over the last ten years or so. All showed no prostate cancer until the last one. Prior to this last biopsy, I also did a specialized urine test which identifies cancer cells in one's urine. Mine tested positive for cancer.

I concur with you on this. If I had not been on TRT and under a doctor's care, it is possible the prostate cancer would not have been detected as quickly and caught as early on as it was. Part of my TRT regime was twice yearly blood tests for PSA levels. It was the climbing PSA that led to a specialized urine test for cancer. When that came back positive, the doctor had me schedule a prostate biopsy. The rest is history....well almost, I am going to schedule the surgery next May.

My choice was fairly obvious, prostate removal, with the newest technology...divinci robot assisted radical prostatectomy...which I did.

Surgery was successful, I'm cancer free ( for now)....and a series of follow up PSA's will let us know if I remain cancer free...

I thank God I was able to heal quickly in order to help my father and family through  what would be, his last 6 months with us...

First PSA resulted in an undetectable score ( best case scenario)....I'm due for another one now....

All good boys....

great news.. inshaALLAH you will be fine forever..

LOL! :D

For folks who have prostate cancer, it is no laughing matter. Unfortuately, a lot of men never get tested for prostate cancer, although statistically one in six men will get it. The sooner it is detected the better one's chances of survival. So you just keep on laughing.

it's been brought to my attention that there was a thread about me having colon cancer...not true.

While I don't share most of my private life for obvious reasons, I appreciate the concern from people in my well being

As most of you know, my father recently passed away ( Dec 26) from advanced prostate cancer...he was diagnosed  about 13 years ago

Can you cite some studies which bear this theory out? I took Proscar and later the generic Finasteride for many years to treat benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). It was my understanding from my doctor that Finasteride, if anything, helped prevent prostate cancer. I stopped taking this medicine because I read that it also can cause ED. These days, I substitute Saw Palmetto instead.

FDA Warns of High-Grade Prostate Ca Risk With BPH Drugs
By Emily P. Walker, Washington Correspondent, MedPage Today
Published: June 09, 2011

Take Posttest


WASHINGTON -- The FDA has issued a warning of an increased risk of high-grade prostate cancer with the 5-alpha reductase inhibitors finasteride (Proscar) and dutasteride (Avodart), currently approved to treat benign prostatic hypertrophy.

The agency announced Thursday that it has updated the Warnings and Precautions section of labels for the class of drugs -- which includes branded products Propecia and Jalyn under which finasteride and dutasteride are marketed for other indications -- to reflect the increased risk.

"This risk appears to be low, but healthcare professionals should be aware of this safety information, and weigh the known benefits against the potential risks when deciding to start or continue treatment with 5-ARIs in men," the agency wrote in its safety announcement.

Avodart, Jalyn, and Proscar are approved to treat symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Propecia, at a 1-mg dose, is approved to treat hair loss in men.

The announcement follows the FDA's Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee's vote of 17-0 in December that GlaxoSmithKline's dutasteride and Merck's finasteride should not be used to prevent prostate cancer because the drugs are linked to a higher incidence of high-grade tumors.

GlaxoSmithKline was seeking to expand dutasteride's indication to include reducing the risk of prostate cancer in men who have had a prior negative biopsy and who have an elevated PSA.

Merck hadn't been seeking an expanded indication, but the company wanted to update the label of finasteride to detail positive results of the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial (PCPT), which demonstrated the drug's chemopreventive potential.

Although the 5-alpha reductase inhibitors were shown to prevent low-risk cancers better than placebo, two large clinical trials painted a disturbing link between both drugs and an increased incidence of higher-risk prostate cancers.

Taken together, data from the trials -- the PCPT and the Reduction by Dutasteride of Prostate Cancer Events (REDUCE) trial -- showed the 5-alpha reductase inhibitors both provided a statistically significant reduction in the cumulative incidence of prostate cancer after four years (REDUCE) and seven years (PCPT) of treatment with dutasteride and finasteride, respectively.

But both trials also found an unexpected increase in the incidence of high-grade prostate cancers among men receiving the 5-alpha reductase inhibitors.

In the REDUCE trial, 29 high-grade tumors were found among patients being treated with dutasteride compared with 19 in the placebo group.

In the PCPT, there was a 26% decrease in all prostate cancers but an absolute increase of 1.3% in the incidence of high-grade tumors.

According to an FDA statistician who spoke at the December advisory committee meeting, if 200 men are treated with the drugs, it is expected that there will be one additional tumor with a Gleason score of 8 to 10.

How to handle low-grade prostate cancer is controversial in the urology community, in part because it is unknown if the low-grade tumors would ever develop into high-grade tumors, and also because the method used to originally detect prostate cancer -- the PSA test -- is inexact.

About five million men received a prescription for a 5-ARI between 2002 and 2009, according to the FDA.

So Bob what you are saying is that one should actually take cancerogenous substances to flush out all potential cancers as early as possible so that they can be treated early  ::)

I think you are confusing early diagnosis with early onset

Did you talk this over with your doctor and the medical profession. I think that is valuable info that may revolutionise preventative medicine.

so is Bob a pioneer in the world of medicine or did he self own himself in this thread?  :-\

Dream on....I seriously doubt most doctors like having to stick their finger (albeit, it is gloved) up some dude's asshole. It just part of the job. I do suspect there are a few folks, like maybe you, who relish the idea of something up their butt.

A proctologist, more often referred to as a colorectal surgeon, is a medical professional who specializes in diseases of the colon, rectum, and anus. A proctologist sees a variety of conditions in the course of his or her practice, and also often works closely with urologists, who handle the urogenital tract in males and the urinary tract of women. In addition, a proctologist may work with an obstetrician/gynecologist to deal with specifically female issues or a gastroenterologist to deal with diseases of the gut. Cancers of the colon and rectum are the purview of a proctologist, as are fissures, fistulas, and hemorrhoids.

This doesn't seem at all gay to me.
