Anything regarding prostate cancer surgery is probably not necessary on your Medical alert jewelry.
If you are undergoing therapy for advanced prostate cancer conditions or have undergone brachytherapy or imrt or proton or others you might consider some information if you are already wearing some kind of "medical alert" braclet.
I had an interesting question put to me today. I was changing my medical insurance coverage. I was still on medicare and still in an hmo/ppo, but I was asked about preexisting conditions. They wanted to know if I had cancer treatment. I said yes. they asked if i was having ongoing treatment, i said no. For those of you who are pre-medicare, preexisting conditions limitations are not allowed except in certain circumstances.
The insurance companies are doing all they can to not pay for their obligations. This was just one more example of gathering information to increase their profits.
OH George Orwell you were so prescient.
