Why women should care about prostate cancer

9 things women should know about men


Five Reasons Why Women Should Care About Prostate Cancer
by Janet Worthington

  1. Many of the readers of our book are women, because men don't want to think about prostate cancer, don't want to deal with it, just want it to be done and over.  I just got an e-mail from a woman who filtered every chapter for her husband, highlighted the parts he should read, and just told him what he needed to know, because he was overwhelmed and panicking, and couldn't function.
  2. During a tough illness, everyone needs a buddy.  Especially in the case of a complicated disease like prostate cancer, it's easy to get overwhelmed with information, and it's hard to tell the good from the  bad.  You need someone to help you figure out the right questions to ask the doctor, to help absorb the information, and help you make treatment decisions.  It doesn't matter whether it's prostate cancer, heart disease, diabetes -- nobody should face a tough illness alone.
  3. We now know that young men are affected by prostate cancer -- so women in their thirties and forties need to know when their husbands, brothers, or boyfriends need to start thinking about prostate cancer. They don't need to obsess over it; they just need to think about it a little bit -- to get one baseline test, at age 40, and then go from there.
  4. Women can help men make dietary changes that may delay or prevent the disease.  We discuss these at length -- the ones that may help, and the dietary strategies (such as taking high doses of vitamins or specific minerals) that may do more harm than good.
  5. Prostate cancer and breast cancer are in many ways two sides of the same coin.  If you both start thinking about your health, getting regular check-ups, screening, and making lifestyle changes, this will be a positive way to tackle cancer before it ever rears its ugly head.
