What I would tell younger men about Prostate Cancer?

Educate yourself about this disease in the same way we educate ourselves about diabetes, heart disease and other cancers. Also, younger men, especially those under 60, need to hear the hard truth about how these treatments impact sexual performance, the bladder pain and leakage and other topics that we men hold taboo for public discussion.

My story:

Many doctors recognize Prostate Cancer as a disease in men 60 and over, but at the very young age of 43, I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. At the time I was sent for a PSA blood test, I admittedly had never heard of, or totally ignored the words “prostate cancer”. Truthfully, I did not even know the function of the prostate, but you can bet I do now!
