Just saw this new promising therapy currently going into clinical trials. This new therapy was shown to reduce tumor size in half in the lab. I don’t beiive I’ve seen this yet on our site. Any thoughts from the braintrust here ???

By advanced I take it they mean metastasized. Shrink the prostate tumor all you want, but what happens to the mets?

This sounds like a good therapy for T1, T2 stage in conjunction with radiation.

I thought exactly the same. They are going to inject the "tumor", they say.

So which tumor of mine will they choose ?? The prostate, the skull, the neck, the collar bone, the ribs, the thighs, the buttocks, the spine..... which, oh which ??? :-)

And, by the time they come around to injecting, I may have developed several more tumors in the ass, penis, testicles, abdomen, bladder.....I could go on.

Life has been great thus far. I have been extremely fortunate (some say, blessed).

So, Ill take it as it comes. You win some, you lose some.

Cheers everyone !!!

Gotta love the gallows humor on this forum. Makes us all feel more alive to smile and laugh and to not let the beast win by taking away all of our joy. They say laughter is the best medicine so thanks for the medicine “whatsinaname”.

Fortunately, thus far, I have not developed anything even remotely resembling "tities" :-) But, who can "predict the future" ?? :-)

Remember that Kramer on the Seinfeld show invented ‘The Bro’ for those man titties. I haven’t seen any in the stores though. He could be having a distribution problem. 😂

Good one, Fitzbruce1, lol, lol, lol. Cheers !!

The Daily Mail article says there's a trial starting next year at St Guys hospital London for 20 people.

The survival stats in the link seem to have many of us going to the gallows a little earlier than we should. Is the survival rate in Great Britain less than in the United States?
