Prostate Cancer Isn't a Good Cancer

It won't be long in your journey with prostate cancer before you will hear someone say to you that your lucky because prostate cancer is "the good cancer." My first reaction to hearing someone say that was to write that person off by placing their name in a file that I keep in my head labeled "Stupid People."

They remained in the "Stupid File" until I was further along the good of grieving all the losses that treating cancer brought into my life. I had a lessening of my pain so I could extend those folks the benefit of the doubt by realizing two things:
1. They meant well
2. They were clueless and there was not point in holding that against them.

On Prostate Cancer News Today I wrote an article about this topic, explaining why prostate cancer ISN'T a good cancer.
