Treating a prostate tumor can CAUSE deadlier cancers

Congratulations!

Your prostate cancer’s been “cured” and you’ve got absolutely nothing to worry about.

Nothing, that is, except for bladder cancer… colon cancer… and rectal cancer.

Yes, gents, a new review of 21 studies reveals that the radiation therapy you believed would cure one form of cancer can actually CAUSE at least three others. And while prostate cancer probably won’t kill you, these other forms of the disease can turn deadly in a heartbeat.

But hey, look on the bright side: The researchers say the risk of facing those other cancers is pretty small when you compare it to the risk of the OTHER side effects caused by common prostate treatments.

Many men end up springing a leak after their treatment. Sometimes, the incontinence is temporary… but in other cases, you’d better sign up for a warehouse club membership and stock up on adult diapers.

You’ll be in them for the rest of your life!

If there’s anything more humiliating than a leaky man-part, it’s the frustration of one that’s gone limp — and yet that’s what you also risk here.

Again, in some cases it’s temporary. But far too many men can pretty much kiss their sex lives goodbye, since common prostate cancer treatments involve either chemical or surgical castration.

The shame of it is most guys don’t HAVE to face any of those risks, because prostate tumors are usually so slow and lazy that you’re pretty much guaranteed to die of something else long before the cancer itself could ever get a chance to do you in.

You’re better off not even knowing it’s there so you’re not tempted into a potentially life-ruining treatment.

Even the researchers behind the new study say that when you consider all the side effects of treatment, most guys are better off leaving low-risk tumors alone.

It’s true that some prostate tumors really can kill you… but the sad reality is that by the time those aggressive cancers are found, it’s almost always too late anyway.

Don’t lose too much sleep over that one; those tumors are pretty rare, and there are a few tricks of the trade that can help you cut the risk of prostate cancer of any form.

One of them is a classic case of “use it or lose it,” because a study published last year found that having more sex can cut the risk of prostate cancer by 20 percent.

And if you have a rare high-risk tumor, don’t mess around with therapies that will ruin your life without actually saving it.

Speak to a naturopathic medical doctor who has experience in cancer care. I recommend a member of the American College for Advancement in Medicine.
