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

How can you say that when you didn't live 100 or 200 years ago.

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.

Its just amazing how genes work.  His dad had it, Bob probably would have died just like his dad if he ignored his family history.  Everyone should start looking for trends that run in the family.  Cancer, heart disease/heart attacks etc......

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.

Ditto. Bob's the best pro who's ever posted on GB. And probably one of the best ambassadors for the "sport" that we have. Also he's only slightly awkward when you accost him about his suits at expos.

I'm sure Tom Prince has posted here all along, as with many other pros.  They should just post as themselves and take the beating like a champ.  Bob has always been cool,  and I always used to like Pro Princes insight on Muscle Mayhem ages ago.

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....

All good boys....

Good to hear man, you're a good guy. Best wishes for the future.

I guess anything is possible...but the bottom line is this...if it did accelerate  the prostate cancer, then it probably saved my life, as my fathers fate was to be mine....my battle with this was much easier and detected early on, as opposed to having to deal with it at a older age.
