DID YOU KNOW THAT……..
Men have a 33% higher rate of being diagnosed with prostate cancer than women have of being diagnosed with breast cancer.
African American men have a prostate cancer mortality rate almost 2 1/2 times higher than white males in the USA.
Prostate cancer usually has no symptoms in the early stages.
If prostate cancer is detected in the early stage, a 5-year survival rate approaches 100%.

Did you know that early detection was a lie??
I have been a prostate cacner survivor for 13 years. My Gleason score was 8.0. I first received Proton Beam radiation, then Cryosurgery, then Hormone treatment (Zolzdex), after my PSA began to rise yet again I went on a 100% VEGAN (plant foods only) diet which kept my PSA level for two years. My PSA is rising again, but I am trying going back on hormone treatment and enjoying everyday to its maximum. Thank you for the Malecare.org website it is the best, most concise, up-to-date information I have seen on the web in all my years of searching.Gary Glassmeyer
