Living with Metastatic Prostate Cancer Newly diagnosed prostate cancer patients have some important decisions ahead of them. Joel Nowak has been through it before and offers some advice for men recently diagnosed. Joel says to get copies of all your medical records and neatly organize them in a notebook or folder. This will make things easier to find when you have questions, or when you want to get another doctor's opinion. It can take weeks to get these documents so it is better to have them ready when you need them. Don't hesitate to ask questions of your doctors, other patients, and support groups when you have them. "You need to become an expert on prostate cancer," Joel says. The more you know about your disease, the better off you'll be. **** This information should not be relied upon as a substitute for personal medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
