People are confused about prostate issues.  I remember when I was in my first office, a man came to me wanting me to “do something” about his prostate cancer.  The doctor had told him no treatment was necessary because he would die from something else before his prostate cancer was a problem because he had the kind of cancer that grows so slowly.

It might have grown slowly but he couldn’t think of anything else because he wanted someone to “do something!”

If you don’t understand the issue, listen to this man.  He is not a doctor but understands the issue and how complicated making a decision about this is for the person.  It isn’t easy for the doctor either.  Understanding it completely will keep a person from “wanting something to be done—right now!”  So take a few moments and listen to the first half of this presentation by Malcolm Gladwell.
