My dad has been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. The doctor said it wasn't a good idea to eliminate it with a surgery, and he will rather treat it with hormones, or something like that. I'm really worried about how this is gonna be in the future. Since I was a kid, I always remember hearing about how bad cancer is, even if detected at an early stage, and how I wished that any of my loved ones didn't have cancer ever.

Do you have any family members that have overcome this situation? Have a good night pit. I'll still lurk around for a while.

I'm so sorry man. I don't know about that particular type of cancer, so it might be best for you to get informed through any specialists/doctors your dad goes to. Many of us have loved ones who have been affected by cancer, but people keep going. There are a multitude of things that can strike us down, but each struggle comes with leearning and growth. Stay strong.

I am very sorry bro.
My mother had skin cancer and she got out of it fine. It was detected at an early stage.
That is a very important factor.
Do you know which stage your dad is in right now?

I'm so sorry man. I hope everything works out okay. 3 family members of mine all got lung cancer from smoking their whole lives. Hopefully your dad was diagnosed with it in its early stages, and he can recover and survive it.

I wish you the best of luck

Its these kind of situations where you need someone who you can talk to and can empathize.
And while The Pit may not be the most obvious place for that, there are still some nice people here who can relate and console.

So sorry to hear that TS. Cancer sucks, and that's of course a major understatement. My grandpa died last year of cancer, I was able to say goodbye to him and just remember the good times together, but it still was probably the worst time of my life.

Jeez...sorry TS I've had many people in my extended family who had or have cancer: my Grandfather died from pancreatic, a good friend has leukemia and another friend has a cancer in his spine. Although I won't make any empty promises of how it may or may not be alright, just make sure your father has the will to go on - that's apparently a big factor when you start chemo, because the harshness of the treatment makes going on seem hopeless. In any case, I sure hope your father comes through.

Don't worry, prostate cancer is one of the less serious cancers, I believe.
My father and grandfather both had it, my dad got his surgically removed and completely recovered and my grandfather got his removed through radiation therapy to great success, AND my grandfather on my mother's side had it and recovered, and although this means I have an incredible chance of getting it in my lifetime, at least there's a high chance that it doesn't have to be terminal.

There's a high chance your Dad will be completely fine, you might be a little tense at the moment, but hang in there.
Nothing's ever definite, your Dad has a high chance of complete recovery

I know that from a stranger on an internet forum this isn't worth much, but I'm sorry.

If you want some information and/or reassurance then, as someone above me said, it's best to get it from a professional.

I don't know what else to say other than it's important you and your family are all there for each other.

Sucks bro, my Grandfather died of prostate cancer, I was only young though..

He was a great mechanic, and my Mum and Dad reckon at his funeral I went up in overalls and checked the rollers his coffin was on, and found one was broken and it needed to be fixed, they say he told me to check
I think its time to pack your things lets go,
To a place where we both know,
And dont worry, I'll drive real slow,
Spend some time before we go..

I feel for you, man. *hug*

My Dad had skin cancer, but they got it early. My Mum has bowel cancer and she's already had her bowel removed- she has a permenant colostomy bag and she's always tired from her meds.

I've got to have scans every year from 25 because both of my parents had it really early... cancer is such a shit, but stay positive- it will bring you all through this.

My thoughts are with you, and if you need to talk to someone who's right on the frontline too, feel free to PM me whenever.

My mom had that too and she's fine

I know a guy who has it, he's getting surgery though. Be lucky it's a relatively good place to have it in, the plasma in the prostate is slow-moving making it less likely to spread. And it's an easier area to treat

Sorry to hear that, cancer sucks But these days, there ARE better and more treatment options, and lots of people make a full recovery. There are charities that can help you and your family as well as your dad, to deal with practical issues like finance as well as the emotional side. Best of luck to you and your dad!

I don't know, but when you are really worried about something personal, a nice "gesture" from a stranger, even if it's over the internet, makes you feel more calm. thank you guys

Sorry to hear that man. Good news is though, if they caught it early (which it seems like they did), prostate cancer is very treatable and usually not too serious.

My sister is currently undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer. Luckily it's a very slow-growing, easily treatable type, but it's still been very hard to see her go through it, especially since she has four little girls, all of them under the age of 7.
She's been on some radioactive iodine pill for a week or so and has to stay locked up in a hotel room and not be too close to anyone.

The best thing you can do right now is be there for emotional support and try to help them in anyway possible. Best of luck to your Dad too, sorry to hear that.

Sorry to hear it. GL with everything, and I'm really glad that almost all of the people in this topic have been good.

My mother has had cancer once and almost had it a second time, and my grandfather died of cancer around a year and a half ago. I know what it's like, and I'm very sorry. I don't think that prostate cancer is very serious, though, so your father should be okay. I really hope he is.
Good luck dealing with this situation.

just be strong for your dad. as long as they caught it early, there's virtually no need to worry.

I'm seriously almost in tears right now. I can just picture that so well.

My Grandpa had lymphoma a few years ago, but he's pretty much completely recovered.

Best wishes to TS and everybody.
