Dr. Snuffy Meyers on how to prevent prostate cancer recurrence

As an eight year prostate cancer survivor myself, prostate cancer recurrence prevention, or PCa Growth Arrest as Dr. Myers terms it, is number one of my list of priorities. I’ve met and talked with Dr. Myers twice at the annul Prostate Cancer Research Institute conference in Los Angeles, and I have great respect for his advice and experience. If my prostate cancer ever recurs, Dr. Myers is the first person I will call. This video offers some great insights and advice that comes from his personal battle with prostate cancer. In my opinion, prostate cancer advice doesn’t get any better than this. After you watch this video, visit ProstateTracker.org and get on the waiting list to create your free Internet PSA tracking service. You enter your PSA data and ProstateTracker will send you a reminder 11 months later to take your next test. Dr. Snuff Myers on Prostate Cancer Growth Arrest read more
