Below is a link to a prostate cancer nomogram developed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. I was provided this link by the moderator at The Cancer Forums. This can be a useful tool in developing your post-diagnosis cancer “battle plan.”
Having spent a career in the military, and now with my own management consulting firm, I was trained to proactively plan for various possible outcomes. The logical question that came to my mind at the time of my diagnosis was simply, “What can I do personally to improve my long-term survival probability.” More on this in my next post.
