"If I have any regrets looking back, one would be my prior level of ignorance about prostate cancer," says prostate surgery patient and writer Raymond Jones, referring to his diagnosis.(6) "Nonetheless, my diagnosis was one of the better ones available in the world of cancer. I feel lucky to have had such an outstanding level of care," Jones concludes.

The survey also revealed that most men (39%) are likely to go to their primary care physician first for information on treatment.(2) Yet, nearly 34% of men indicated that they are only likely to begin their research after they have symptoms.(2) At this point, it may be too late to receive a potential cure offered by surgery: In cases of prostate cancer, symptoms usually occur when cancer has progressed to an advanced stage.(7)

The good news about prostate cancer is that today, men who are diagnosed early can beat prostate cancer.(8) And, effective treatment options like minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery can offer potential benefits like effective cancer control,(9) improved and early return of sexual function(10) and urinary continence,(11) and a fast recovery.(12)

"I expected to experience a time where I would be completely incapacitated, followed by a prolonged period of healing, but that was never the case," says surgery patient Sheldon Hough. "If I had one message for men, it would be that there is significant hope. Don't postpone getting regular prostate screenings. And if you are faced with a prostate cancer diagnosis, know your options and seek out the best possible care."(13)( )
