My uncle was diagnosed with prostate cancer. All of us were concerned even though the doctor who discovered it explained that it was highly treatable. When news like that hits a family, everyone wants to make sure that they are making the right decisions, especially the person who has been diagnosed. That was why I helped my uncle find a prostate cancer specialist to treat him.
It turns out that there are a lot of different approaches to treating prostate cancer depending on a whole lot of factors. A good doctor takes a look at the age of the patient and the aggressiveness of the cancer to determine the best treatment option. My uncle was not very old, so he had a lot of years ahead of him.
