Living with Prostate Cancer / Re: Need some input

My father-in-law went through something similar when he was in his 70s. He is now in his mid-80s. Very happy with the results.

How old are your kids? The older they are better chance they can handle it. Also depends where they are with their lives and their personalities. Everyone is different and will handle this news differently.

That sucks Matt. Hoping whereever this spread is treatable. I've read can be tricky depending on where it went. Until you get all the facts i wouldn't make any quick decisions. Work through with your support team and then with all the info in front of you figure out next steps.

I'm sending good vibes your way. Hoping it all works out.

Thanks Liz

Your doctor will need to do a genetic test of the cancer to see what type of treatments will work.

Do they have to do a biopsy to run those tests?

I recently discovered a lump in my right breast and I've got a doctor appointment coming up. I've been researching the types of breast cancer and i'm completely confused. I've found stuff like hormone receptor positive breast cancer, HER2 positive breast cancer, and triple negative breast cancer. What's teh difference? Does a lump indicate one over the other?

Appreciate any info as it's all so overwhelming :-\
