My boyfriend just got diagnosed with prostate cancer and one of his options is robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy. Is this safer than regular open surgery or radiation? I'm still trying to understand all this. The doctor told us what will be the best for him in terms of his health and the risks involved. I appreciate your time and information greatly.

I had prostate cancer with a PSA of 169. The urologist put me on Lupron. The PSA went down to 1.0 and the cancer went away. After a couple of years, I'm having symptoms again. This time, I don't have insurance. Is there a way that I can get a shot and just pay for it out of pocket? How much is it likely to cost?

Is there a cancer center near Wasaga Beach, Ontario?
