I have Prostate Cancer. Do you? I started Radiation therapy. The process, & how the machine works. [Video]

This is the process that began a year ago, in January 2022. Here I document my journey and what led up to this very first treatment and what to expect if you choose this route. Let this video serve as a warning to encourage you men to make a yearly appointment with a doctor to make sure your PSA score is low. But if it is high, this is a painless option of what you can do about it. *Note: If you were in Vietnam, it has been proven that Agent orange causes prostate cancer. Now go get checked!God bless and Stay well. ~Davehttps://www.sanfordhealth.org/locations/sanford-worthington-cancer-center
