Prostate Cancer: Sharing Stories of Survival

Ad Feedback

Aside from skin cancer, prostate cancer is the leading cancer affecting men in the United States today.

Being diagnosed can hit like a ton of bricks, making it important that men hear stories of others who've already been there.

Sen. John Kerry, pro golfer Arnold Palmer and CBN founder Dr. Pat Robertson have all been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Every year, doctors break that same news to about 200,000 American men. One in 35 will die from the disease.

A man has the greatest chance for survival if his prostate cancer is detected early. The PSA screening test is recommended in men as young as age 45.

There are many types of treatments, but patients sometimes have difficulty deciding which is best for them. The book Prostate Cancer Survivors Speak Their Minds is meant to help with the decision-making process.

In the book, Dr. Arthur Burnett shares the stories of celebrities and ordinary men who have dealt with prostate cancer.

Burnett appeared on Wednesday's The 700 Club to talk with Pat Robertson about 'Prostate Cancer Survivors Speak Their Minds,' treatment options and the importance of a support system after being diagnosed. Click play to watch the interview.
