I wanted to stay out of this thread. But Gordy and El Tigre asks the right questions. No, I don't believe that PCa is a sexually transmittable disease. There is no scientific basis for this reasoning. That stated, there are cases of male breast cancer as well as there being coincidental cancer cases...i.e. the Curies (Marie and Pierre) exposure to radiation, for example. But take no heed to this thread in particular, as it isn't seemingly possible.
AEG, you have asked some interesting questions. Don't stop. There is value for many here to see the responses.
We are not a bunch of illiterate people here. Doctors are quite capable of missing some great information in these threads. Otherwise there would be only one way of dealing with the disease, and it would be carved in stone and work every time. We speak here, I believe, to get as much experience as possible without, or while, living the experience ourselves. My radiation oncologist and my medical oncologists are at odds on how to deal with my condition. I cannot ask them to tell me which way is best and get a straight answer. In fact I have involved MANY doctors and have ended up at the same
location. For me, it was time to think outside the box. But by the input of the great responders here I feel good that I am on protocol for treating stage III cancer. We shouldn't seek medical advice here but rather, seek the patients experience and asking this type of question is not ridiculous. Just curious. Your retortes are respectable. But I have heard more absurd things that make me wonder.
In the mean time, this is outside the box. I respect that.
