As a member/moderator here for quite a while, I have seen some interesting things in prostate cancer come by me.  Here are some observations...
 
Highest PSA I have seen at HW?   3,200  (hi Todd)   But I have read as high as 16,000 elsewhere.  Both can tell you about it...
Lowest PSA of advanced and G10?  3.6   The patients was staged at pT3a Gleason 10.
Highest PSA of local disease? 40+ (JohnT do I have this right?)
Longest tenure of stage 4?  15 years and going strong ~ Mike Milken!  He is a Gleason 9 to boot. at HW? just shy of 11 years...
40-49 year old PCa survivors at HW?  about 50.  Average stage of them is about T3.  about half are stage 3 or 4...Yuk I'm in that catagory...So was the G10 guy above...
30-39 members here? 3.
Famous members here?  I know of 6, but it's likely more.
Members with multiple cancers?  I can recall 10. 
Lowest PSA at Dx?  0.9  (JerseyG)  The DRE was positive leading to positive biopsy.
Most second opinions? 7
Number of spammers? Well over 50....grrrr.
 
 
In my 2 and a half years here I have had the unfortunate observation of 4 members husbands who passed on.  One died of another cancer.  While this is a very low number, it still is too high.  Even still, after observing over a thousand cases here, it is a low number.  I have heard members tell countless stories of the passing of family members due to prostate cancer and that has saddened me.

Tony,

Interesting stats. Yes my PSA was 40 and I hope it is local, but really won't know for a few years after all radiation stops.

JohnT


64 years old.

PSA rising for 10 years to 40, free psa 10-15. Had 5 urologists, 12 biopsies and MRIS all neg. Doctors DX BPH and continue to get biopsies yearly. Positive Biopsy in 10-08, 2 cores of 25, G6 less than 5%. Scheduled Surgery as recommended.

2nd Opinion from Dr Sholtz, an Oncologist said DX wrong, path shows indolant cancer, but psa history indicates large cancer or metastasis. Futher tests and Color Doppler confirmed large transition zone tumor that 13 biopsies and MRIS missed. G 4+3 approx 2.5cm diameter.

Combidex MRI in Holland eliminated lymphnode mets. Casodex and Proscar reduced psa to 0.6 and prostate from 60mm to 32mm. Changed diet, no meat and dairy.

Seed implants on 5-19-09, 3 hours door to door, no pain, minor side affects are frequency and burining urination. Daily activities resumed day after implants.

Scheduled for 5 weeks IMRT in July

Greg,
I'm not sure I can answer that. There are tens' of thousands who have visited our site. I'll ask peter if he can identify the number who have actually posted in PCa.

Hi Tony,
 
I loved your "Observations!"
 
The stats you listed were both sobering and also a testament to the value of this site.
 
I wish you well, my friend.
 
P.S. I promise you I'm not shooting for longest record for a Veteran Member not logging back into the site.  Also, I talked to "biker" today and "bluebird" today.  They're both doing well.
 
All the best,

By the way, Tony.  My latest PSA in my signature is incorrect... It is 0.062, not 0.62

Tony,

Thanks for putting some perspective on this disease we all have. It is easy to become paniced when the doctor comes in and says you have PC. It is even easier to become a little (or a lot) scared when you kiss your wife and kids goodbye as they wheel you into the OR.

Laying on these scanning tables, radiation rooms, hearing words we haven't the foggiest what they mean, all tend to raise our blood pressure, and wonder if we'll ever see our kids and grandkids get married, have babies, etc.

As your unscientific stats show, we can beat this thing, if not forever, for a long time. We have time to make informed decsions, do our homework, and keep ahead of this thing instead of behind it. We don't have to be pressured by any doctor to make a quick decision.

We need to take deep breaths, make rational, informed decsions, and head into battle, but taking time along the way to smell the roses, enjoy life, and be thankful that we don't have it as bad as other people. Just spending a couple minutes in some of the other HW forums can make us realize this isn't as bad as what we originally thought.

Thanks again for bringing us back to reality !

Hey Doting! tongue

Nice to "see" you again.  I'm glad to catch up on your Dad's condition via your signature.  I pray he stays in the "good zone" too.

I'm doing fine.  'Didn't like the idea that my PSA came out of undetectable today, but it's still less than 0.1, which is good!  December is my next PSA and I'm looking for a good Christmas report.

I hope the Healing Well gang is, you guessed it, healing well!

Kindest regards,

Hi Barry,
It is very nice to see you again. I look forward to you adding that zero in your score. If I start tracking the term between posts, I'll be glad to add you. What I would take it to mean is that you are doing great... :-)

Bob, LOL, you might be that guy on the seconds, that was meant with humor...For the record, I did meet a guy with a Gleason 4 but it was at an US Too meeting. No he had not had treatment. My Us Too director, Lew Musgrove, the former President of US Too, had a Gleason 8 in 1992. He had surgery and still to date, no relapse. You can look him up. He is happy to talk about it. I believe that Milken has had some struggle with his PSA but he looked great at the Scientific Retreat for that silly little organization he founded ~ The Prostate Cancer Foundation. Again stage IV, G9 Dx in 1994...The love never left you, Bob...

Everybody thank you for the kind comments.

Tony

Jersey,
You win the top spot there. I completely forgot about you when I transferred this over from an older post I revived. I have made the change to the post.

Sorry, SHU...If it helps, I do know of another 5 from other sites that were under 40 whne diagnosed. Like I say about my case, I would have been positive at 40, probably at 39. I was 44 and advanced already when the cores came back positive.

Mal,
I don't know for certain. When you get to age 64 and above you have the largest population of prostate cancer survivors, and T3 is more commonly found. That said as a whole about 15% of all here, were T3 or above. It's probably higher of a percentage. It's more than one in ten. I prefer to count the upside down 67 year olds with T3 that are doing great ~ and you are doing great down there in Perth. :-)
