Today I learned that I have a very low grade prostate cancer, I have, in the past, had both larynx and early lung cancer, had chemo and radiation on the larynx in 2009 and all there is really doing well. Had a small nodule removed from my lung in 2012 that turned out to be cancerous. They found it on a one year scan for the larynx, iy was only a one and a half centimeter nodule. I had the biopsy because my dad, brother and Uncle all had prostate cancer, all survived that. My PSA, which has been elevated for years due to BPH, last PSA was 5.6, up from 5.0 last year. Anyway doc said we could do nothing and watch, I am 70, or radiation, I chose the rads only because treatment has worked on larynx, stage 2, and surgery on the lung ? stage no one ever told me if the lung thing was staged. Did I do the right thing going for the surgery? the doc said I would not get any symptoms for at least 5 to 8 years and it was not going to kill me.
