Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 _ THi LETH'RIDGE HIRAIO Monday, March "73 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Prostatic cancer treatment varies Dear Dr. Lamb My hus- band is in the liospital with cancer of the prostate. There are a lot of tilings I don't un- derstand. The doctor said there was no surgery to be done and no cobalt treatment, also no radium treatment. They say the procedure now Is to cut off the hormones that are feeding the cancer. I un- derstand the procedure they are doing. I just don't under- stand why they are not going to remove the prostate gland. I would like it very much if you would please explain Ibis for me. By cutting the hor- mones so that the cancer can't feed, is there a chance of the cancer becoming active again? If so, can you give me some idea just what we have to look forward to when, and if, this happens. I have a second medi- cal problem. My mother is in tie hospital in Canada and they say her condition isn't serious "The doctors say her heart isn' pumping enough blood and she has fluid on the lungs. Dear Reader Regarding the problem of cancer of tin prostate there arc differen treatments according to the na ture of the cancer. Usually an attempt at surgical remova of the prostate is done when the cancer is detected in a very early stage. After tha the possibilities of getting a' the cancer cells out are s small that the extensive sur gery that would need to be don is not justified in many cases A number of doctors feel on th basis of case studies that the can accomplish just about a much by hormone therapy depending on the case and doc tors' opinions vaiy some. Some times the testicles are remover, and female hormone alone i prescribed. Some doctors do us radiation therapy. If this is confusing to you wouldn't be surprised. There no absolutely right or absolute Your horoscope By JEANE D1XON wrong method of treating ancer of the prostate, but I do elieve that most doctors would gree that, extensive surgery to chieve surgical removal for nything other than a very arly prostatic cancer Is prorj- bly not justified. Some men go for years with- ut any additional difficulty af- er they've had hormone ther- py sometimes combined with adiation therapy. Again there's o set rule. It does seem tha he male hormone testosterone limulates the growth of the irostate cancer cells. There's no way I can tell you what to expect. It may be a long time icfore there is any further rouhlc or it may be sooner, file indefinite outcome is why doclors are so vague. They really can't tell you. If the can- cer extends to involve other >arts of the body, the difficul- Jes will depend on what parts of the body are actually involv- ed. I would like to encoirrage you though that m many in- stances if the cancer is not too far advanced modern therapy can go a long way toward de- laying the process of the cau- cer for a period of years. Regarding your mother's prohlcm as you describe it I'd have to say it is a reason- ably serious condition called heart failure. Relief can be ob- tained for years in some cases by giving digitalis and other medications. How beneficial these measures are and how long they will suffice depends on the extent of underlying heart damage which is respon- sible for the failure to begin with.

Warts seem to be extra fond of children. They seem to ar- rive from nowhere and usually their beady little buttons grow on the fingers. They may squat lere for a few weeks, some- 3 ilcliing and smarting. Then they may suddenly de- de to lade away. However, ometimes a wart is so stub- lorn that only a doctor can re- nove it permanently. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. COHEN O im, TIM BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS Q. 1 North-South vulner- able.
