Faces of Prostate Cancer - David Licorish
As a retired nurse, David Licorish had a background in medicine. So when he learned he had prostate cancer at age 63 he may have had a few more questions than most. His careful research led to the discovery of a clinical trial in which drug therapy is used to suppress the male hormones known to stimulate cancer growth. Tests show the drugs are working for David – his PSA level plummeted from a 12 at diagnosis to 0.1 with treatment. David knows the therapy isn’t a cure for his cancer, but he’s controlling the disease on his terms.
“I’ve discussed surgery with my doctor, but she thinks I’m doing fine with this treatment,” says David. “My cancer was discovered early which gave me choices.”
