I was diagnosed with very early stages of prostate cancer last year. The doctors say it is a very small spot and they are going to just watch it for now. At my age, 78, I really do not want to go through any treatments or surgery- if it ever comes to that. I would like to hear from people who have been diagnosed with this cancer and know more about what you have endured.

In our quest to find information on prostrate concer I found a great website. Look it over. I'm sure it will be very helpful. mayoclinic DOT Org

I have recently found out that my prostrate cancer is growing. I have great anxiety waiting for the biopsy.

I heard it is not uncommon for elderly patients with prostrate cancer to take not action. The theory is that something else will become the issue before the cancer will. I was amazed that with all of today's medical advances that this was an option.

the doctor says that there are some prostate cancers that are so slow growing that he feels the best alternative is to do nothing for dad. How do you live with that? Dad is 82 and has some other health issues but I am having trouble dealing with "doing nothing but monitoring".

My grandfather just had another test done to check his prostrate level after taking a hormone shoot. Although he hated the side affects of the shot, his level came down significantly. Hurray!

My dad took hormone shots and his PSA level went down. Yeah! But he did experience hot flashes. Welcome to a wormans world daddy.
