Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and its panel of prostate cancer experts did not approve the application for the noninvasive, high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology as a treatment option for localized prostate cancer, despite the fact that….
Prostate cancer awareness, PSA screening for prostate cancer and the ill-conceived, debilitating radical surgery/robotic prostatectomy “treatment” are generally worthless and harmful, and represent an unbridled scam in public health. For many years, it has been quite clear that most so-called prostate “cancers” behave as noncancerous and are, in fact, more like a pseudo-disease….
DECISION MAKING STEPS on whether to submit for a prostate cancer screening PSA blood test and for any possible evaluation for prostate cancer and its treatment can be extraordinarily difficult. Not only is this true for individual men but…
“Choosing prostate cancer surgery was the worst decision of my life” Patient There is no creditable scientific evidence for significant curative life extension in men treated for prostate cancer through radical prostate surgery/robotics alone.

I applaud Dr. Vorstman for his excellent articles warning about the risks of surgery and challenging the urologist’s self generated claim that surgery is the gold standard for prostate cancer. I now know surgery is far from being the gold standard and that more informed prostate cancer patients avoid it like the plague. Thanks to the courageous actions of Dr. Vorstman and other urologists who are speaking out about the risks associated with surgery the word is out that this procedure has too high a risk of side effects. An increasing number of health care providers are joining with Dr. Vorstman and recommending minimally invasive treatment of prostate cancer so that risks of side effects are kept low. Since over half of the men diagnosed with prostate cancer still have it treated surgically I now believe those health professionals that are saying the way we treat prostate cancer represents a national public health disaster.
