Prostate Cancer is Up; Treatment Options May be Down

Prostate Cancer Deaths up 14% in 2010

As many of you know, the National Cancer Institute projects that prostate cancer deaths will rise in to 32,050 men by the end of 2010, an increase of 14% over the 2009 death toll.

NCI is unsure of the cause of the increase, but clearly the trend is in the wrong direction.

Fewer Treatment Options in the Near Future?

Cancer is an undeniably expensive disease.  According to a recent NY Times article, cancer treatment in the United States costs over $100 billion annually.

This cost and concerns over the new medical legislation are causing some insurers to find methods of containing these costs.

One containment strategy is to convince doctors to stick to the approved ‘standard of care treatments and forego more expensive options.

If you are a cancer survivor or family member, take a minute to read this article.

Warm regards, Robert
