An Island In You
An island does not form from the top of the water down; it must form from the bottom up unless it is a floating island. Floating islands are usually of no consequences as they can be manipulated accordingly. The island that you have to navigate around and have respect for is the one that have formed from the bottom up. It is usually after years of sedimental built up, that the first peak is shown unbeknownst to the unwary, that it has been growing for years.
By the time one learns that an island is there many a seafaring vessel can be wrecked on its sandbar, rock or reef. Recognize this fact that the island would not have broadcast the arrival of its apex upon the surface, and when it arrives it would be so fundamental (from the bottom to the top) that there would be nothing that can be done about it.
Be warned my friend that the disease of prostate cancer operates similarly, though more sinister as this island inside you delivers a payload of slow and debilitating death.
So you can see why this question bothers me? What are the symptoms they want to ask! They always ask! In other words tell me when it’s too late, when it’s too late I’ll go to the doctor. I have given speeches about preventions and wrote a scary book about the disease of prostate cancer entitled Prostate Cancer and Me... Or You (The Two Stages) Man to Man. It always gives me convulsions though when someone procures the book and turns around with the book in hand to ask me, “So what are the symptoms?” Even when in normal conversation with a mate or bro they always want to ask the same question, the irritating, unnerving question and even for me the sickening question, “What are the symptoms?”
Do You Really Want Symptoms
I believe symptoms are for the poor and hapless, in this sense. The weak and the gullible, the chaff that the wind blows away, and those that have chosen death instead of life. Unfortunately if you read this and at the end of it you do not call your doctor for an appointment you are guilty too. Know this that prostate cancer affects one man in six and the disease could have your name on it. It could be worse if you are a Jamaican as we rule the roost in prostate cancer, with the highest incidence of the disease in the world. It could be making a bee line to your ultimate manhood where it would constrict you like a cobra until your life is snuffed out. Hence my question, is this really what you want? Do you really want symptoms?
Isn't it true that if you have symptoms you are already sick? Symptoms of the cold mean you have the cold, a tooth ache means you have a cavity; headache could mean high blood pressure and so on.
Symptoms Vs. Warnings
symptoms should not be taken or mistaken as warnings as in the case of tornado sirens or even hurricane forecast. Warnings will enable you to get out of dodge and protect yourself and are beneficial to your safety.
Symptoms mean my friends that you are already infected or affected. Fly high or low you are already inoculated by what has caused the symptoms. Symptoms are not nice they are actually dangerous as in the case of prostate cancer that could deliver a devastating payload like a stealth bomber, or if you prefer like a cobra with serious constricting capabilities. When it pops up like the island, your life will never be the same. Take it from one who has been there and has done that.
What are The Symptoms Though
I have mentioned the symptoms many a times in other blogs and even in my book. I will not mention it here. This blog is not to allow you to procrastinate, or pussyfoot around. You will not learn of symptoms here as this could contribute to your premature demise. What you must take from this today is that you due a visit to your doctor from yesterday and you shouldn't wait until tomorrow.
Tomorrow is promised to no one, and then the symptoms might appear, and it might be too late for you.
Go to the doctor and tell them Lloyd Martin sent you that they should do the PSA blood test on you and not only the Digital Rectal Examination. I pray that for you everything would be normal and that the symptoms of prostate cancer are not detectable. For if it is you might have waited too long.
In concluding here is something better yet: stop eating meats grown with growth enhancers for mass production. Grow your own foods as much as you can from pots, pans on your porch, to your backyard garden. Only eat certified organic foods found from certain stores. Remember the longer the shelf life, the shorter your life! And please! Mothers take care of your babies; fathers take care of your sons.
