How your wife can keep you from getting prostate cancer

The link at the bottom of this post will take you to a recent television interview on prostate cancer by Richard Peterson, PCAP Prostate Cancer Pony Express Rider #7, and prostate cancer survivor.

Dick tells his story about how he was diagnosed with prostate cancer at 49, but only because his wife convinced him to have an annual PSA test. Had Dick had his PSA test when he turned 40, he would have detected his cancer eight years earlier, giving him more treatment options.

As you listen to the interview you will hear two stories

  • Dick’s story, which should convince you to begin having an annual PSA test
  • the TV commentator once again telling viewers why testing really isn’t that important unless there is a history of prostate cancer in the family

Some facts we need to know

  • There are over 240,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in America. More new cases of prostate cancer each year than breast cancer.
  • Most doctors and media journalists continue to tell men that ‘in their lifetime ,almost every man will get prostate cancer but most will die of other causes.’ Most men do die of something else, but 34,000 men die a painful death from prostate cancer every year; more than 1.2 million men since the declaration of the “War on Cancer” in 1971.
  • Once prostate cancer has spread, there is no effective treatment.

Here’s Dick’s story
