SARASOTA, Fla., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Mike Strong, a health minister for Hallelujah Acres, was only 52 when an annual physical revealed his Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) was 31 (normal is 4 or under). Although he had no symptoms, a biopsy confirmed that he had cancer.
His doctor urged him to have a radical prostectomy to remove his prostate and surrounding tissue. He refused, but did agree to take the testosterone blocker Lupron for one year.

Sometimes, prostate cells begin to grow abnormally, forming a tumor.
Prostate screening normally includes a blood test called PSA, digital
rectal exam (DRE) and a Sonogram/Ultrasound. If cancer is suspected,
traditional medicine requires a biopsy where a Gleason score (a sy
