I found out last month I have prostate cancer. When talking with the Dr. he asked about smoking. My brother and I never have but our parents were heavy smokers. When I was working in the 70's and early 80 I worked with a lot of people who smoked in the office. My wife would have me strip off my clothes in the garage when I came home from work because they smelled so bad of smoke. My brother has prostate and bladder cancer. The doctor said since we both have cancer it could be from second hand smoke.

I'm not a doctor but also have prostate cancer. I will say this, a man who has any age about him is going to have prostate cancer. Every man that I call a friend, and we are all elders, has it. If it is slow moving it is not an issue. My urologist tells me that I will die from something else before this cancer will rear its ugly head.

Jesus! Am I the only old fart aging male around here w/o prostate cancer? The only smoker I had in the family was my dad who smoked a pipe. Like Bill Cinton, he claimed he didn't inhale. :rolleyes: Of course he died of lung cancer. :crying

I have Prostate BPH, diagnosed 1992 when I was only 44 years of old age. My father died of prostate cancer and I was a heavy smoker so I get a yearly checkup. PSA readings and digital inspections are doing good so far.

Not the only one... I'm 77 and have no signs of prostate or any other cancers so far. My mother was a heavy smoker as I was growing up and I smoked up to two packs a day until I quit in 2003. Regular PSA tests and DRE's haven't found any prostate problems yet beyond a mild age related enlargement.

I went by the Riverfront Dish facility in Littleton tonight. There appears to be a lot of construction going on. At one time it was Dish's headquarters which has now moved to Meridian, south of Denver.
Wondering if the work is related to Dish's new wireless adventurers?

( Did I do a good job of getting back on topic?) :)

Speaking of their new wireless adventures, I’m wondering when/if they will start offering post-paid plans, bundling deals, etc.
I’ve been with Dish for almost a quarter of a century, so bundling their Satellite TV together with their Mobile Communications plans would work for me.
I must be in the wrong thread, I thought this was about Dish going into the wireless carrier business, not airplanes, airlines, and cigarettes. :confused:

I’ll give you points for trying, but with this group, I’m sure we’re heading back into the weeds in a few posts!
