I will be on Science Friday today, sometime between 3:30 and 4:00 PM EST, with Ira Flatow. In New York, it will be on WNYC, on KQED in San Francisco at their time for the show (a three-hour time change). Check your local listings, or listen at your convenience on their podcast.

My last post, The Top 10 Reasons Why Buffett’s Decision to Get Treated for Prostate Cancer Bugs Me, resonated with a lot of people.

As some readers know, I have been writing about prostate cancer for a very long time. I have covered many annual meetings of the American Urological Association, breaking news in medical journals and in Urology Times. Over the years, I have spoken with key opinion leaders in the field. I also ran the urology blog and website at about.com. Like many of you, I have had relatives diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Issues linked to prostate cancer encompass everything from questions about diagnosis and treatment to health reform and reimbursement for medical services. Less hard to discuss in a public venue are concerns about how men feel about treatment: are impotence, incontinence, and quality of life impacted by aggressive treatment? –can you choose no treatment when the healthcare system is built around treatment?  Men and their significant others deserve nothing less than the best, unbiased information.
