PSA ZERO™ Prostate Cancer Treatment Program
A 21st century program designed for men to treat and control PSA, prostate cancer, BPH, overactive bladder and erectile dysfunction.
The diagnosis of prostate cancer, enlargement (BPH) or high PSA can be alarming to say the least. The emotional stress, anxiety, and fear can lead to a "knee jerk" reaction, perhaps based on very little knowledge or education. This can lead to a "blind" decision which may have consequences for the rest of your life.
In reference to the American Cancer Society's position, the education and awareness found in the PSA ZERO™ Program addresses the need to answer the multitude of questions about prevention, testing and treatment options. PSA ZERO™ seeks to provide men vital education based on factual information found in research and recent studies.

PSA ZERO™ advocates PSA screening tests as a valid precursor in the diagnosis of prostate cancer, although by itself it is inconclusive in its results. When used properly it can provide crucial baseline information to help physicians determine the relevant course of action. However, in many cases, PSA baselines are not established. Without this crucial baseline it is impossible to monitor and measure the velocity of the PSA, making the test completely subjective. Unfortunately some men will receive a biopsy without this vital information, possibly leading to a fearful diagnosis of Prostate Cancer.
The number of deaths related to radical initial treatment are potentially avoidable. Without reliable prognostic indicators, an aggressive approach to all patients with early diseases would entail substantial over treatment. Patients with localized prostate cancer have a favorable outlook following watchful waiting. In contrast, patients with locally advanced or metastatic disease may need trials of aggressive therapy to possibly improve their poor prognosis.
Currently, there are no universal guidelines for all physicians to follow. Many patients do not have the knowledge about the dissection of PSA testing. In its complete form testing is capable of measuring PSA density, PSA velocity, free PSA (good PSA), as well as an age adjusted PSA, further reducing the false positive / false negative rate. Although there are several measurements available, many physicians choose to use only one facet of the test, possibly without even establishing a baseline and then coming to a highly subjective conclusion. Often, recommending the patient have a biopsy, perhaps being completely unnecessary.
You can protect your prostate and biological functions, only if you are well aware of the diseases, treatments and associated complications. Along with your physician, the PSA ZERO program will provide this vital education and awareness needed to preserve or restore your natural biological functions.
Education and awareness is the key to making intelligent decisions about your health. By properly educating yourself you will be able to ask your Doctor imperative questions, helping to ensure the best defense in avoiding over diagnosis, over treatment, complications, and or increased risk of death. It is solely your responsibility. Please be proactive and work closely with your doctor. After all you only have one body and one life to live, with no margin for error.
This program is exclusively available through physicians only.
