Prostate Cancer Strikes

Gogs GagnonHi, my name is Gogs Gagnon, and I was diagnosed with prostate cancer at the age of 57. At the time, I had no symptoms, health issues, or family history. And yet, cancer was already in the final stage before breaching the prostate. Overall, I was in the best shape of my life. I lived a very active lifestyle, cycling daily, hitting the gym and training in martial arts. Therefore, the diagnosis was difficult to accept. Just hearing the word “cancer” was enough for my mind to shut down. At that moment, I could no longer understand the doctor. The news hit hard, and I thought my life was over.

At first, I found it very difficult to talk about and even had trouble speaking to my spouse. But I soon realized that sharing my thoughts and feelings was very therapeutic and helpful. Prostate Cancer usually doesn’t have any symptoms in the early stages. Therefore, men must be proactive with their health and not wait for signs before seeing a doctor. Before my diagnosis, I knew nothing about prostate cancer or the prostate gland. As a result, I made many mistakes and oversights that I want others to avoid. I hope my will serve as a guide to those facing prostate cancer or who are curious about the disease.
