Prostate cancer diagnosis, gleason score, biopsy, conventional or non conventional therapies?

Each of these therapies has a risk/reward scenario. Keep in mind that there is a long and growing list of evidence-based, non-toxic therapies to treat early prostate cancer.

Dear Cancer Coach- I was wondering about natural/not so invasive treatment options for a diagnosis
of prostate cancer I received in April of this year. I was diagnosed with 3+3
gleason scale 1st stage cancer after a biopsy revealed 3 of ten positive
samples in a biopsy of my prostate.

My question is how long can I take to source out and explore
“alternative to surgery or radiation” treatments? I was told in my second
opinion that prostate cancer is the single most over diagnosed disease in men in Canada. That being said the reason they found it in the first place is due to
a dysfunctional water works system including a sitting on a golf ball feeling, so I am going to assume that I do have a relatively serious problem.

I have found that Saw Palmetto seems to have a positive effect and that
coffee has a negative one. A couple of other items that may be of interest
are that I found there are some things my body won’t tolerate these days.
They would be dairy products, caffeine, chocolate. Water seems to go right on
through me as well. I thought if you were keeping a data base you may be
interested in some of the symtoms.

Regards,
John


Hi John-

I am sorry to read of your prostate cancer diagnosis. I will address your questions below.

“how long can I take to source out and explore”alternative to surgery or radiation treatments?”

The answer is that this is up to you. I say this because a) only you can weigh your dysfunctional water works and the “golf ball” you feel you are sitting on and compare this to learning about and comparing the risk/reward of several different therapies.

Possible therapies for the early stage prostate cancer patient are:

  • Watchful waiting or active surveillance.
  • Surgery.
  • Radiation therapy.
  • Cryotherapy (cryosurgery)
  • Hormone therapy.
  • Chemotherapy.
  • Vaccine treatment.
  • Bone-directed treatment.

Each of these therapies has a risk/reward scenario. Keep in mind that there is a long and growing list of evidence-based, non-toxic therapies to treat your early prostate cancer.

Let me know what you think.
