  • Don't know if you are doing the right thing?
  • Feeling adrift in a sea of advice?
  • Getting the feeling that everyone is trying to sell you their form of treatment?

Essential knowledge

  • Prostate cancer is not just a disease; it is also big business and you are the consumer.
  • There is no single preferred treatment endorsed by the medical community.
  • Many doctors are unaware of or simply do not take advantage of new diagnostic and treatment capabilities.
  • Many doctors are biased toward their form of treatment.
  • You must ask the right questions to significantly increase your chance of choosing a practitioner/treatment that leads to a good outcome.

  • Interpreting your pictures: What is PI-RADS anyway, and how do I use it to help make a decision?
  • Biopsy decisions: Should I? What type?
  • Teatment decisions: There are so many choices! What's best for me?

Going further: you may save, extend, or improve your quality of life

Consider going further by purchasing the book, PROSTATE CANCER Asking the Right Questions, for just 99 cents. The book contains nuggets of empowering information and is written from the patient's perspective. It also contains a checklist to help you navigate the prostate cancer testing and treatment process.

Asking the right questions is the only way you can increase your chance of having a good outcome. Nothing is certain when dealing with prostate cancer, but for just 99 cents you can increase your chance of saving, extending, or significantly improving your quality of life. I wish I had a resource like this when I was dealing with my prostate cancer.

Tom's Notes: Penile Rehabilitation

  • Tragically, some doctors de-emphasize penile rehabilitation, which can be key to regaining sexual function after treatment. A friend of mine's urologist told him not to worry about regaining sexual function - he said it can take up to five years. This is terrible advice. It is extremely important that men avoid the possibility of penile atrophy by not going longer than four months without an erection (read Chapter 16).
  • Be sure to develop a penile rehabilitation program with your doctor before treatment. There are doctors who specialize in this field.

Look for "Tom's Notes" at the bottom of each page of this website.
