Don Imus Reveals Having Prostate Cancer
Don Imus, the talk radio host, has gone public with his diagnosed with stage 2 prostate cancer. Imus has not discussed his treatment choices. Most often prostate cancer is treated through surgery or radiation therapy.
Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America, affecting 1 in 6 men. Prostate cancer hits more than 200,000 men each year, with roughly 30,000 deaths each year.
If the cancer is caught at its earliest stages, most men will not experience any symptoms. Symptoms of prostate cancer are similar to those of benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH) and include:
> A need to urinate frequently, especially at night
> Difficulty starting urination or holding back urine
> Weak or interrupted flow of urine
> Painful or burning urination
> Difficulty in having an erection
> Painful ejaculation
> Blood in urine or semen
