Reading about GrumpyDaddy's cancer diagnosis just now reminded me I hadn’t updated Ian’s thread following his latest follow-up a couple of weeks back. He is still undetectable, by that I mean his PSA level (prostate specific antigen) is less than 0.001ng/mL and that is classed as undetectable. Even though we expected this result it still makes you breathe a sigh of relief seeing it in print! 

I suppose I also just wanted to say again if you have ANY concerns, even the slightest worry, then get checked out. It is of course different for everyone but dealing with something was, for Ian/us, better than pretending it wasn’t happening. Cancer CAN be treated, dealt with, and life does go on. A good friend in the village has been given a good prognosis 6 months after her breast cancer treatment, and another friend has been given the all clear at his yearly check up. 

For anyone facing cancer treatment right now  . . . . Well, I don’t know what words to say except, well, here’s a big hug for you x

That’s really very good news for you and your husband, I’m very happy for you both.

Your sentiments on not knowing what to say to folks facing treatment or just finding out about the condition for the first time I think is a common one. I know I’ve struggled in the past to find the appropriate words when told of family and friend’s with this condition.

I don’t think there are appropriate words - telling the person how you are feeling while processing the information is a good start. I imagine it must  be stressful for the person telling you the information just as it is being the recipient, probably more so.

Your final sentiment is a very thoughtful one.

A colleague of mine found out too late that his had spread all over

I found out about his condition second hand and not from the horses mouth so to speak. This made me feel awkward and preferring not to broach the subject with him.

I have said to all of my work mates that they should feel able to talk to me any time. I don't want anyone to feel awkward as I did

Your news @MildredM brings a smile to my face and a positive feeling to the possibilities for me
