Great question and what are the facts about
PCa, not the wishful thinking. Even with using nomograms, Partin Tables, Bluestein and other assessment tools (which many uro-docs/surgeons don't even bother with using those basics, let alone the other blood markers and urine tests)..there is no guarantee even for low stats or maybe indolent PCa cases, nobody can know or properly assess with absolute certainty where the heck is the PCa. Soooooooo, everybodies treatment herein is based upon the so called good hunch, best guess, s.w.a.g. (scientific wild a__ guess) and such considerations or even worse. This is the wonderful world of PCa only a few docs will mention this is how it is, but some do. This is one reason why Dr. Leibowitz and some other oncologists may appear to more sane than you first thought about
using their protocols even as primary treatment.
So based upon knowing such, how motivated are you (anyone) as a patient to know what is what, am I being treated the way I wish to be treated, are my factors like quality of life placed into the "real" perspective and I am or was I informed of every possible choice or future prognosis's based upon my findings, (rarely are you informed like this..plenty is hidden). Question everything is not exactly being dumb.
