This subject is a real bring down but a necessary reminder to everyone. My sister recently died of breast cancer at 67. She neglected her screenings and ignored signs. Everyone (male and female) do not ignore signs or skip necessary tests/screenings. Men, urge the women in your lives to get their mamograms and follow up ANYTHING.  Men do the same for yourselves. Cancer is a terrible but preventable/treatable disease. Stand with your loved ones and keep this from them. Sorry for the rant!

Sorry for the loss of your sister Snakey.  I get my PSA checked every year.  Mine went from 1.5 to 2.0 and I went to see a urologist.  He said my prostate felt normal, let's just continue with routine check ups.  I started reading that many men have sub optimal intake of selenium and that will elevate your PSA.  Did some more reading and found that Brazil nuts are the single best source of selenium.  Two brazil nuts daily give you all your need.  Been eating them daily for months.  Last checkup my PSA had dropped back to 1.5.  You are your own single best advocate for your own health.

TAK I agree about self-advocacy, being proactive and acting on advice of your doctor. All of these things can prevent or mitigate the effects of diseases thatt were previously a death sentence. My sister will be missed but hopefully other may hve their lives extended and not leave the void that the loss of a loved one brings.

Snake3,
Sad news. Great of you to share the awareness(and reminder); a heartfelt tribute to your sister. No rant; caring is how you are coming across(no need to apologize for caring...).
Keep on keepin' on.
Best regards,

Damnit Thom, sorry to hear that. Good reminder.

We are fortunate in this matter that your conduct will be your marker and, thus, your reputation. The conduct of others on this forum has been, and will continue to be, their marker, and thus, their reputation. In the west, a person invests in one's reputation carefully. - 112Papa

Yeah Evan it is a complete shock when someone close (or anyone for that matter) dies unexpectedly. With the elderly you can kinda prepare (as tough as that is) but when someone who should have may years left goes s quickly it is a hard adjustment. So much can be prevented now with modern medicine, it is important to give the treatment as much time and advantage to beat such a terrible disease. I have harped/ranted this message to many (hope it helps someone). Thanks to all for listening.
