      1. Become an information hoarder. Read, read, read. CANCER (the word) scared the hell out of me. I was 46 when diagnosed. I DECIDED to have a radical removal. 12 yrs later, Still cancer free. Only you can decide what is right for you. There is life after removal. Mine was done via robotics. Functionality is not quite the same but good enough. 😀.
