The Perils of Reading

Do all people with cancer read up on their condition and treatments? I've found it a quite meagre experience, never supplying the hoped for Golden Bullet of peace of mind.

This isn't to say that there aren't surprises to be found.  One is the sensitivity of the prostate to hormones.  As a desperate measure, there are hormonal treatments to obliterate testosterone.  Alas, this involves also growing breasts and having one's goolies removed!

And what the books never say is what happens to the separated objects.  Are they handed over in a glass jar to be kept on the mantelpiece?

I will be giving these options a miss, my curiosity isn't that strong.  And walking the landings with boobs? All that can be said for that scenario is that I'd never go short of tobacco!!
