Prostate Cancer Diagnosis? Never Do THIS
Mainstream medicine LOVES nothing more than taking your money.
Do you know what makes folks fork over their cash faster than anything else?
And nothing strikes fear into people’s hearts more than the word cancer.
But men, if you’ve been diagnosed with prostate cancer, I want you to stop and take a deep breath.
And then READ THIS before making any drastic decisions.
When I read a study to see if something “works” or doesn’t, I’m mainly looking for the survival rate.
In other words, does the treatment, drug, or procedure help you live longer?
In prostate cancer patients, researchers identified something that’s linked to a 97 percent survival rate after 15 years.
Sends Survival Rates SOARING
What IS this miracle cure?
The technical term in the industry is the “watch-and-wait” approach.
This SAME survival rate was found in men who underwent surgery or radiation therapy for prostate cancer. In other words, there was NO STATISTICAL DIFFERENCE if they submitted to slash and burn treatments or waited it out.
Now I ask you, if the cancer was causing NO ill effects, would you want to live with or WITHOUT your prostate for the rest of your life?
The data pool used for this study included over 82,000 men, 1,600 of whom were diagnosed with localized prostate cancer.
They were then divided into three groups: radiation therapy, surgery to remove the prostate, or “active monitoring” (the DO-NOTHING group).
Comparing “Active Monitoring” to Standard Treatments
After 15 years, 12 in the surgery group, 16 in the radiation group, and 17 in the active monitoring group had died.
The men who did nothing were likelier to see their cancer progress and spread. But this did NOT reduce their chances of long-term survival.
While the quality of life was similar in all three groups, the men in the treatment groups experienced long-lasting urinary, bowel, and sexual function side effects.
These included things like urine leakage, fecal leakage, and impotence.
I hope this shows you that if you are ever in this position—especially if you have low- or moderate-risk prostate cancer—to not rush into any treatment decisions.
At the very least, you could delay a major procedure that may drastically alter your quality of life.
Remember, at the end of the day, active surveillance doesn’t mean doing nothing. It means not being pressured into undergoing a risky treatment any sooner than necessary.
P.S. Prefer to do SOMETHING while watching and waiting? A recent study found that one particular type of exercise can reduce the risk of metastatic cancer by 72 percent. CLICK HERE for the whole story.
