Treatment of prostate cancer is controversial. Most side effects from treatment are more harmful than the actual cancer itself. Even screening for prostate cancer could be argued as needless if not harmful to overall patient health According to the most recent data, when including all stages of prostate cancer: Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Inspiring US Warrior T-Shirt The relative 5-year survival rate is almost 100% The relative 10-year survival rate is 99% The 15-year relative survival rate is 94% I honestly think that has a lot to do with it. Hocking products plastered with pink ribbons and the word “breast” is probably more effective than conjuring up an image of a man’s pelvic guts. It doesn’t really though. If you read about the history of cancer, almost all of it centers around breast cancer. It is the one cancer YOUNG people have always been getting, so it’s always been in focus.

metastatic breast cancer is cancer that has already spread to other parts of the body. If people were able to help ANY metastatic cancer, it would be a tremendous breakthrough. This is Stage IV cancer we’re talking about. The point of “awareness” is to keep breast cancer localized and keep it from metastasizing. The headline doesn’t make sense. It’s like saying Money spent on anti-smoking ads doesn’t save smokers from lung cancer. Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Inspiring US Warrior T-Shirt No it is not. The big difference here is that stopping smoking reduces the chances of lung cancer death, while performing mammographic screening on low risk (young) women doesn’t. We, the society and the medical establishment, created a hypothesis that, since advanced cancers are difficult to treat, we should invest in finding cancer before it becomes “advanced” and then it will be easy to treat and we will save lives.

The problem is, now that we do find cancer early, it is not easier to treat. We have the same death rate as before, proving that massively widespread screening and awareness does not to work, yet we continue throwing good money after bad because of we are too emotionally invested. I seem to be bad at reading these articles and links today. Can someone point me to the figures that show that the deaths from 20 years ago are roughly the same as the deaths today?Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Inspiring US Warrior T-Shirt I would have thought that as, er, inefficient as these awareness campaigns are that they at least would have got more women to get screening and detect early, preventing advanced and/or metastatic disease.
