Description

If you (or a loved one) have recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, danger lies ahead. Efforts will be made to either treat it unnecessarily or with procedures with risks of side effects so severe you will regret it. The Prostate Cancer Industry is a vast array of medical device manufacturers, heath care facilities, physicians and others who generate over a billion dollars annually from treating prostate cancer of which only 20% is actually life threatening. Efforts will be made to scare you into believing you need immediate treatment with most of you being encouraged to have surgery or other treatment provided by the urologist who diagnosed your prostate cancer or an associate. DON'T RUSH INTO TREATMENT until you have obtained an independent second or third opinion from a medical oncologist or internist unrelated to the physician who diagnosed it. To survive prostate cancer AND the prostate cancer industry you must educate yourself on prostate cancer and the different ways it can be treated. Keep in mind that what is in your doctor's best interest may not always be in your best interest. The author selected the non-invasive treatment of proton therapy because of its established effectiveness and least risk of serious side effects. He describes his surprisingly pleasant journey through prostate treatment and encourages you to consider proton therapy as your treatment.show more
