EARLY DETECTION


I am a 62 yr old female and a prime example of early detection of this dreaded disease. I was diagnosed by an ultrasound in Oct. 1994. A whipple was done Nov 14. There was no evidence of spread and the tumor was small. There was no chemo or radiation needed. I just had my 5 yr CAT scan and am still clear of cancer. The biggest hope for PCa is research into this malady. Others can be as luck as I have been-there is hope.
