But medical science has advanced greatly over recent years.

The Cancer Council is constantly doing research in an effort to best address all forms of cancer.

And they will continue to do so.

Doctors are always looking for better ways to care for people with cancer, especially prostate.

Surgical procedures were the most effective way of arresting to growth of the cancer cells at first.

Recently, the medical profession adopted the policy to “watch and wait” in certain cases before operating.

There are many ways now that cancer may be best treated.

The treatment of one person may differ from that provided to another.

Currently the medical profession is experimenting with clinical trials in an effort of finding the most effective way of treating cancer in individuals.

They study ways to ease symptoms and side effects during treatment and manage late effects that may occur after treatment.

These trails are for the benefit of the person and not the commercial value.

The Orange Hospital has set up one of these Prostate Clinical Trial Units.

Stephen Millard has been appointed Manager of the newly created Clinical Trials Unit at Orange Hospital.

He was the Clinical Trials Coordinator at St. George Hospital and completed his qualifications with honours at Melbourne University.

He manages all trails across medical oncology, haematology and radiation oncology.

His aim is to be of assistance to cancer patients in western rural New South Wales.

These trials have the total support of the Cancer Foundation of Australia.

Stephen Millard will be the guest speaker at the next meeting of the Parkes Prostate Cancer Awareness and Support Group.

He will be accompanied by Ms Lindy Ostini, the recently appointed Regional Prostate Cancer Officer, also based at Orange Hospital.

This meeting will be at the Parkes Sports and Bowls Club on Tuesday, May 24, commencing at 7pm.

This meeting is open to all, men and women, young and old, particularly for those who not yet been affected with this disease.

Light supper will be served.

Please do not leave your head in the sand.
