How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?
Dear Jerry,I have not had anytime to come on here lateley because my husband has been very sick.I do want to make sure I do tell you my husband did the best with Zytiga while it worked.He at least had a good summer while it worked but it didnt last long for him but nothing has worked very long for him but every day counts.Hes had some bumps down the road surgery because he lost feeling in his legs and then radiation ...
Does anyone out there have a psa this high?It was 500 beggining of Jan. and now it went down 100 points because he had radiation to the brain.Any info. would be great!
I don't want to scare you but I do not agree with people who say its a slow growing cancer.Don't mess around my husband was diagnosed at 51 with stage 4 prostrate to the bone so I don't think in his case it was slow?Everyone is different.I do think the older you get it the slower it grows because you have less testosterone which feeds this type of cancer.I have heard very good luck with the radiation seeds and my hus...
Sorry to hear about your husband. My husband was diagnosed at 51 but his gleason was 8 and psa was 335.His was already in the bones unfortunatley.

Does anyone take this drug or have taken it? Please dont reply if you want to put your 2 cents in if you have NOT tryed it.I would like to know any good or bad of anyone out there that has taken it.
My husband has stage 4 prostrate to the bones .He has done Zytiga and it didnt work for him either.He was on Cabataxel but he ended up in the hospital anemic from a low red blood count.While he was in the hospital he got up to walk to the bathroom and fell because he had no feeling in his legs.They removed 2 tumours which were pushing on his spinal cord and he is able to have feeling in his legs agin-very scary.He wa...
I know i am not spelling it right but my husband started to take this after docetaxel quitworking.anyinput would be great.
Hi there,sorry to hear your husbands psa is backup.myhusband had his psa checked after being on zytiga since the end of june and his psa is back up to266.westarted chemo again today-not real happy about it.i think it worked for the first month but when we were there in aug. They thought it wasn't working anymore so they kept him on it for 6 more weeks to see if it leveled out or went up.?
Has anyone heard about using the IP-6 supplement?Any information would be of help.Someon e that we know started taking it who had lung cancer and now shows no signs of a tumor anymore.Wonder ing if anyone else is taking it?
My husband 51 was diagnosed with stage 4 prostrate to the bone in June of 2010.My husband lost his battle to cancer July 14, 2012.He is at peace now but missed by everyone.
