Prostate cancer is one of those things that people don’t want to talk about, but we MUST. Too many men die from prostate cancer and it’s just necessary. I lost my grandfather to prostate cancer even though he had a bad heart, multiple heart attacks and heart surgeries and lupus too. It was the prostate cancer that got him in the end.
Now, we have new testing for prostate cancer than can hopefully save more lives.
Prolaris is a genetic test for prostate cancer from Myriad Genetics Laboratories that combines traditional risk factors with molecular assessment. Prolaris is the only test that can actually measure how fast the prostate cancer cells are dividing. The information obtained from this test greatly impact the treatment choices available to the individual that is diagnosed with Prostate cancer.
Why are we talking about prostate cancer? Because 1.2 million biopsies a year lead to 240,000 prostate cancer diagnoses and 30,000 deaths. Prostate cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer related death in the United States. Since women tend to take the dominant role in health care and screening in our homes, we need to be more educated about Prostate cancer and in turn, educate our loved ones. Knowledge is power!
