Just heard on Inside Edition that Al Roker, the weatherman from the Today show was diagnosed with prostrate cancer.  He said it was discovered in a routine exam.  Please people, do not be lax on keeping yourselves happy and healthy with dr visits!!!!!!!

Sorry to hear that Al has prostate cancer, but prostate cancer does not  = death sentence.

 

 

 

Prostate cancer is a v-e-r-y slow growing cancer, and in all honesty, men are far more likely  to die with  prostate cancer, than from   it.

@Pearley I am sorry as I have been at the vet today and was unaware of the previous post.  Sorry for the duplicate annoyance.

Thank you for mentioning this @Anonymous032819 .  Clearly no one ever wants to hear the word cancer. But, if every man lives long enough, he will likely have prostate cancer. Like anything, early detection is key.

I heard this today also. I sure hope they caught it in time and that he recovers well. Such a nice man.

@Boomernichols, I rarely open the TV and Movies forum, so I'm glad you posted here. I wish him well; it's always difficult to get a cancer diagnosis.
