NHS spend on testicular and prostate Cancer compared to Breast and cervical ? by SIMON B Q: Me and the wife were having a discussing about the relative nhs investment and mortality rates of male and female cancers (as she is a school nurse assistant). I maintain that male cancers (testicular / prostate) are not taken as seriously as female cancers (breast and cervical) and have less investment in them. Does anyone know if there is a disparity between the four cancers and why this is the case? Please don't cloud the issue by telling me that men suffer with breast cancer, I know!

A: I think some of it is how much coverage they get. Breast cancer has a huge promotional effort behind it and is a big money make so they spend lots of money on research.

Why do you think so much more attention is paid to breast cancer over Prostate Cancer? by Red Phantom Q: The US Government spends double on breast cancer research over prostate and the corporate disparity is much greater. Campbells soup doesn't have Prostate awareness soup cans! Although deaths from breat cancer are 1/3 higher there are far more cases of prostate cancer, over 240,000 per year. The funding and awarness differential is 300 or 400%. So is it a gender issue, an age issue (tends to be later onset) or What?

A: Truthfully, I think it comes down to this: "the squeaky wheel gets the grease." Women have aligned themselves behind this cause and worked together- socially, politically- to bring attention to and fight for the research money. They have banded together to raise money and awareness. They've gone through the necessary steps to make sure that this problem is not ignored. Men should do the same for prostate cancer. This is one area that men could learn something from the example of women. I'm not saying this to be sexist. I'm saying it because it's the truth. Men need to band together and fight for what they want. Things aren't just handed to any of us on a "silver platter." We had to struggle for what we wanted to achieve. Prostate cancer indeed does deserve more attention. Men have the power (same as women) to bring this issue to a level of heightened awareness. But I wouldn't stop there. Awareness is a great first step- a necessary one, but take it further: join in force and be political advocates. Don't stop until you reach your goals! You'll find out, along the way, that as others gain awareness, more people will join in the fight for your cause...not just men, but women, too.

What is the best surgical procedure to treat prostate cancer? by romanticgirl1980 Q: I am from Philippines, my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The doctor's advice is to do surgical procedure wherein they have to remove the testicles/scrotum of my dad. Isn't he suppose to remove the prostate instead of removing the testicles/scrotum? Once the testicles are removed, what are the chances of survival if his prostate wont be removed?

A: prostate cancer is hormone fired. (it relies on the male hormone to grow and spread), by removing the testicles they remove the hormones. This operation is often performed on quite elderly patients and can be a simpler proceedure than removing the prostate itself.

Can a person with prostate cancer transmit any form of cancer to his mate? by Rudy N Q: Is it prossible to transmit cancer to another person by contact? Case in point: An acquaintance of mine had kidney cancer and prostate cancer each of which have been successfuly cured. Later his wife had uterine cancer. Could her malady have been transmitted by the kidney/prostate cancers?

A: Cancer is not a transmitable/contagious disease. It is more likely that they were exposed to the same carcinogen (cancer causing substance). Either that, or plain bad luck! You haven't mentioned their ages or how long they have been together, but if they are an older couple, age is probably the biggest contributing factor.

At what age should you start prostate cancer screenings if you have a strong family history? by BargainMama Q: My husband will be 30 soon and I wonder when he should start psa screening for prostate cancer. His father, paternal grandfather, and paternal uncle all had/have prostate cancer. His father was diagnosed at age 43 but it appears to be out of remission now after 10 years. I've read the recommended age is 45 or 50 yrs but if my father-in-law waited to 45 he'd be dead by now. So if you have a strong family history, what's the best time to start?

A: $0 would be reasonable earlier if has any symptoms

What does treatment for prostate cancer consist of, and does it affect a male's ability to have sex? by Marq JPAA Q: A very close friend of ours has been diagnosed with prostate cancer (it really *isn't* my partner or me!) and we were wondering what his treatment options might be. If the prostate gland is removed, does that eliminate the ability to have sex? Probably best to have an older person answer this: it's pretty obvious by the question that this is going to be completely out of the realm of experience for most of the teenagers.

A: It can, but new surgical techniques have reduced the risk. I was diagnosed with it about a year ago, but a second opinion from Johns-Hopkins said no. At least not yet. Anyhow, there are a number of different treatments that depend on the age of the patient and the stage of the disease. At my age, 50, and the very early preliminary diagnosis, removal was recommended. There is a new procedure called the da Vinci procedure that is minimally invasive and less likely to lead to the nerve damage that causes impotence. However, it is still a risk, as well as a risk of urinary incontinence. And even if you are not impotent, your orgasms will be dry - seminal fluid is produced by the prostate. There are also other procedures, such as implanting radioactive 'seeds' into the prostate. It is my understanding that the risk of impotence from that or any other radiation procedure is higher than da Vinci surgery, but less than with traditional surgery. Chemo and broader irradiation can be recommended in more advanced cases. My brother had the daVinci procedure, and he is able to have sex. He uses a penile constriction band to maintain an erection; I don't know whether he had any ED problems before. He is able to have orgasms, but as I said, they are dry. Sometimes, again depending on the age,the stage, and how aggressive the cancer, they will recommend leaving it alone. Don't bank on that, though. Here's a link with info on the daVinci procedure. Tell your friend my thoughts and prayers are with him. I know how scary this is. I have to have regular biopsies to keep track of mine, and every time I go through hell waiting for the results. http://www.davinciprostatectomy.com/davinci_prostatectomy/index.aspx If you Google 'prostate cancer stories' there are lots of personal stories on the web.

What would motivate feminists to make misleading claims about prostate cancer deaths? by Juditha lives on Q: One feminist, who claims some sort of medical expertise, he repeatedly claimed that most men die WITH prostate cancer but not FROM prostate cancer. While this is true, simply because most men of a certain age have started to develop cancerous prostate cells and therefore most men who die do have prostate cancer, this claim is very misleading because it fails to acknowledge that prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men.

A: My theory is that this person is either misinformed or is else is trying to minimize the suffering of men. My beloved former slave had prostate cancer and had to have it removed. Thank god the cancer hasn't returned, but it has left him unable to have intercourse, even with little blue pills. It sounds like the person you're referring to is trying to pooh-pooh prostate cancer and minimize the damage (and death) it can cause.

prostate cancer? by hellocutiepie99 Q: If a man has his prostate removed due to prostate cancer, is he still able to produce sperm?

A: I have had a radical prostechtomy (prostate removal). There is no more sperm. Also, only a small percentage of patients regain the full erection strength they once had, even with all the pills and devices on the market. I would do it over again however. No cancer for 4 years so far. I am 55 next week.

Prostate cancer ? by Sylow M Q: I want to know about prostate cancer and what constitutes the optimal form of treatment for patients with clinically localized cancers remains controversial. Can anyone give more information on it? Thanks in advance.

A: Treatment decisions are at present made on the basis of tumor grade and stage and the age and health of the patient. Although selected patients may be candidates for surveillance based on age or health and the presence of small-volume or well-differentiated cancers, most patients with an anticipated survival in excess of 10 years should be considered for treatment with irradiation or surgery. Both radiation therapy and radical prostatectomy allow for acceptable levels of local control. A randomized trial comparing watchful waiting and radical prostatectomy in men with clinically localized prostate cancer is currently under way in the united states (PIVOT: Prostate Cancer Intervention Versus Observation Trial). This trail will randomize 2000 patients and will run for 15 years. Patients need to be advised of all treatment options (including surveillance) along with their particular benefits, risks, and limitations.

Prostate Cancer? by persianchick99 Q: I did not know what to make of this mornings news. A mixture of emptiness (not knowing what to think) and shock still pains my insides. My childhood crush, who I haven't seen in over 2 years is possibly dying from prostate cancer. It has spread to his stomach. I would like to ask if it is common among young men (20), and if genetics plays a major role? (He's father died of prostate cancer before he was born.) Does he have any chances of survival?

A: Prostate cancer is usually common in men over 50 while it is uncommon in men less than 45. Many factors, including genetics and diet, have been implicated in the development of prostate cancer. His father who had prostate cancer would suggest he acquired it genetically. His chances of survival would depend on stage of his cancer now. It seems that it had already spread on other organs according to your description so it would depend on ho far it has gone and how big the tumors are if there 's any. The appearance of his cancer cells ( Gleason score) would also help to tell his prognosis. The doctor would know and is the one who can tell. Anyway, just by your brief description we cannot tell what is going on exactly. He may have the different treatments available as he is still young so let's just extend prayers and your moral support would count a lot.
