A patient information handout on screening for prostate cancer , written by the authors of this article, is provided on page 1541. Another handout on management options for prostate cancer , also written by the authors, is provided on page 1545. P rostate cancer is second only to lung cancer as the leading cause of cancer deaths in American men. In 1997, approximately 209,900 new cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed, and more than 41,800 deaths were attributed to this malignancy. At present, chemotherapy and immunotherapy cannot cure prostate cancer once it has spread beyond the gland. Therefore, curative treatment for localized tumors may be the best hope of lowering the mortality rate for prostate cancer. According to this viewpoint, the primary focus of prostate cancer management should be the detection and aggressive treatment of tumors while they are still confined to the prostate.

Prostate Cancer Screening: More Harm Than Good?
University of Missouri School of Medicine, Columbia, Missouri
The American Cancer Society and other national medical organizations emphasize the need for routine screening for prostate cancer in men over the age of 50. The serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) assay is the test most commonly recommended for the purpose of screening. However, when PSA screening is examined critically from the standpoint of the principles of screening, evidence from prospective studies to support the routine use of PSA testing is lacking. Data suggest that screening often detects what may be indolent, nonaggressive prostate cancer. The treatment of such a cancer with radiation or radical prostatectomy can result in significant morbidity, including urinary incontinence and impotence, without a proven decrease in mortality. Evidence from randomized clinical trials in support of routine PSA screening is urgently needed. T he purpose of screening tests is to identify disease in asymptomatic persons at a stage when treatment will alter the natural history of the condition. There is now a widespread call to incorporate routine prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening for prostate cancer into the care of men over age 50. However, little prospective evidence shows that the benefits of such testing outweigh the risks. The ideal way to assess the efficacy of screening is with prospective randomized clinical trials; unfortunately, no such trial of prostate cancer screening has been conducted.

    Receiving a diagnosis of prostate cancer can be scary. It can lead you to fear, panic and hurried decisions. You may even feel that you need to make an instant decision and begin treatment right away. However, most prostate cancer is slow growing, so usually there's no need to rush. Instead, give yourself time to gather information. Learn about all treatment options that are available to you. Perhaps talk to others who've been in a similar situation. And consider seeking opinions from doctors in specialties such as urology, oncology and radiotherapy. Some doctors are more inclined to recommend a treatment in the specialty that they're most familiar with. Gathering several specialists' opinions may give you a more balanced understanding of your treatment options. Before reaching a definitive treatment decision, it's important that you understand the pros and cons of the various options in relation to your specific situation. The information in this guide is designed to heighten your understanding of the details to consider. In this guide, you'll watch a Mayo Clinic urologist answer frequently asked questions about the treatments available for prostate cancer. You'll also see and hear from five men, each of whom chose a different treatment option.

Foundation Until There is a Cure,
We Will Provide the Means to Cope!!

Hello, I'm Virgil Simons, welcome to my On-line Guide to Fighting Prostate Cancer . At the age of 48, after the results of my first PSA test, I was told that I might have prostate cancer. Staring into an abyss that seemed without hope, I questioned - was I going to die of cancer as my mother had?.......what treatments were possible?......could I survive?!
After a sufficient period of anger, self-pity and general confusion I made a decision - I AM GOING TO LIVE!!!! From that point on it was a matter of whether it would be on my terms or the prostate cancer's. KNOWLEDGE would be the edge to tip the balance to my favor - . But where to look, who to believe Then I saw my computer and the answer was evident and manifest - use this information highway as the road to save my own life.
In the eight years since that first diagnosis, through to a successful radical prostatectomy and subsequent clean PSA's, access to the Internet provided me with the information, dialogue with health care professionals and other survivors needed to regain control of my life. I became a partner with my doctors in deciding what was the best treatment for me that would be the greatest chance for cure and retention of the quality-of-life I desired!!

Learn the warning signs of this addiction, the risks of domestic violence and prostate cancer, and how to manage the addiction.
defaultStatus="All Seekers"; This web site,, evolved from an earlier site,, which was first made available on the Internet early in 2000. In, we attempted to show how Guy Leekley had been applying the teachings of the Tao Te Ching to his own inner struggles with alcohol abuse and other obsessions. He believed that over many years, hormone imbalances in his body brought on by these extremes had contributed to a diagnosis of prostate cancer at the end of 1990. We tried to show in how during that decade from 1990-2000, as Guy was working through his translation of the Tao Te Ching, its teachings helped him to deal with his various addictions, obsessions and delusions. This spiritual text provided guidance for living in a manner that has helped to keep the cancer in remission. With the publication of his Tao Te Ching A New Version for All Seekers , Guy feels that now it is time to retire and use to show how we can all learn from the teachings of the Tao Te Ching We coined the term Sophrony because there did not seem to be a word in English that clearly expresses the view of how we should live that one finds in the Tao Te Ching . The closest that Guy could find is the Greek word, sophrosyne, an ideal of the ancient Greeks that has no equivalent in English. It meant the opposite of arrogance and insolence, learning to live gracefully within our natural limitations, and following the inner laws of harmony and proportion.

Researchers Say PSA Screening Yields Many False Results
Reuters Wednesday, July 6, 2005; Page A03 A screening test for prostate cancer taken by millions of men every year is not terribly accurate, and even the best result does not ensure that a man is cancer-free, experts said yesterday. Researchers found that the standard prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, test produces many false positives and false negatives meaning some men who think they do not have cancer actually do, while others may undergo uncomfortable biopsies only to learn there is no tumor after all.

"Patients have assumed, 'My PSA is below 4. It's normal. I have no risk,' " lead author Ian Thompson of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio said at a news conference. Usually, a biopsy is not recommended unless the PSA level exceeds 4 nanograms per milliliter.
