Sorry to hear Rush has lung cancer.

Hope he gets better soon. And congrats to him on his Presidential Medal of Freedom! So well deserved.

Here's some coverage from Cancer Health

Come on.  :P :P :P Next you will tell me not to drink my coffee in the morning. Literally you can find a report how everything on the planet can kill you. Thanks but no thanks. I'll stick with my OJ.

Living with Prostate Cancer / Re: Prostate Cancer Treatment

I had a friend who was about 10 years older when faced with that same decision. He went for treatment. The seeds were very uncomfortable to say the least. He did kick into remission though. He never talked about the ED stuff so sorry no feedback on that front.

Living with Liver Cancer / Re: do i have liver cancer

I had a friend in a similar situation. He was told it was 80% chance of being cancer and only 20% of being malignant. They couldn't figure out which it was until after it was removed. This all happened about 7 years ago. He got lucky and it was benign.

He also said don't let them take the entire kidney. There are doctors who can just remove the tumor and leave a bunch of your kidney. In his case they saved 75% of the kidney. He had it done at Sloan Kettering. He first went to doctors in NJ and they all told him the whole kidney had to come out.

I saw it. I laughed my ass off. The "Polish woman of doom" was my favorite bit although went a little long by the time he hit Arbor Day. Amazing how he can make you laugh about something so so dark.  Must of been so theraputic for him to work through that material.

Isn't there some peace of mind to knowing? If it's easy enough to include in your annual physical AND your insurance covers it, I'd keep doing it.

Now I have a reason to talk about my dad and Gandalf in the same sentence! ;D 8)

Thank you for the quick reply. Feeling better about the decission.   :)

Hi. I'm on here for my dad. He's 85 and was just diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer. His doctor is telling him he doesn't need to treat it because at his age it will do more harm then good. I've read that prostate cancer is relatively slow developing but just wanted to triple check that makes sense.

So what do you think?
