Your First Stop after Prostate Cancer Diagnosis.llo world!

You are not alone. You are probably not going to die from prostate cancer anytime soon.  Even though there is no clear consensus on how to diagnose or treat prostate cancer, there are choices that you can make to make your life long and full and happy.  That is why the New York State Prostate Cancer Coalition is here. We know that most men diagnosed with prostate cancer will not die from prostate cancer.    We want you to be one of those men.

We are a state wide non profit organization, composed of prostate cancer survivors and their family and friends, doctors, social workers and other stakeholders who came together in 1999, with the recommendation of the New York State Department of Health, to focus on coordination of:

  1. prostate cancer screening
  2. research funding
  3. education and awareness about patients’ treatment choices
  4. efforts to improve patients’ access to clinical trials

Our current activities are:

  • Educating men in New York State regarding screening and treatment options for prostate cancer.
  • Providing a resource for men with prostate cancer, their caregivers and their families.
  • Encouraging participation in prostate cancer research and clinical trials.
  • Educating state government and policy makers about prostate cancer.

    You can change your diet in conjunction with using the creams that you’ve been using and that will speed up the recovery significantly. But what I would also recommend is to use a homeopathic solution instead. I always feel if there’s a natural way to do something, then it’s best to avoid the chemicals. I would look for an natural product, that can be taken orally to promote re-growth of the good bacteria in your body.

    Our friends needed to focus on the family, learning about prostate cancer risk from father to son.

    Recently, a clinical trial showed daily supplementation of 1 mg of folic acid increased the risk of prostate cancer , while dietary and plasma folate levels among vitamin nonusers actually decreased the risk of prostate cancer .

    Lead researcher Dr Axel Thomson, from the MRC unit in Edinburgh, said ‘This is an extremely exciting development that has the potential to form the basis of a revolution in prostate cancer treatments over time if replicated in humans.

    The reasons for this are not clear. More intensive screening in some developed countries probably accounts for at least part of this difference, but other factors such as lifestyle differences (diet, etc.) are likely to be important as well. For example, men of Asian descent living in the United States have a lower risk of prostate cancer than white Americans, but their risk is higher than that of men of similar backgrounds living in Asia.

    While a plethora of treatment options exist for men diagnosed with localized prostate cancer—growths confined to the prostate gland—there is a dearth of studies comparing those treatments in terms of both cost and effectiveness.

    This is major abdominal surgery and not the preferred treatment for prostate cancer as it commonly results in substantial blood loss, a lengthy and uncomfortable recovery and the risk of impotence and incontinence. The alternatives, e.g., laparoscopic prostatectomy or da Vinci robotic prostatectomy, offer a better experience. One of the most common treatments for prostate cancer involves the surgical removal of the prostate gland, known as Laparoscopic Prostatectomy , or Radical Prostatectomy. Traditional radical prostatectomy requires a large 8-10 inch incision. If surgery is the recommended treatment for prostate cancer, a da Vinci Prostatectomy , a less-invasive surgical procedure called robotic prostatectomy may be the right option. Robotic prostatectomy incorporates a state-of-the-art surgical system which enables a precise surgical procedure with reduced risks, minimal side-effects, and quick recovery time for patients.
