The 6|aod
The second leading Iillei of men is cancei. Accoiding io ihe
Ameiican Cancei Socieiy, µiosiaie cancei is ihe mosi commonly oc-
cuiiing cancei in Ameiican men. Aboui I man in 6 will be diagnosed
wiih µiosiaie cancei duiing his lifeiime.
The µiosiaie is a walnui-sized gland locaied in ihe male µelvis,
in fioni of ihe iecium and below ihe bladdei. Funciioning as µaii of
ihe ieµioduciive sysiem, ihe µiosiaie maIes sµeim-caiiying fuid.
A $cary $||eoce
Iiosiaie cancei, in iis eaily siages, usually shows no symµioms.
The cancei is iyµically discoveied duiing a iouiine checIuµ, by a
µosiiive digiial iecium exam (DRE) oi an elevaied Iiosiaie-Sµecifc
Aniigen (ISA) level fiom a blood iesi.
Sieven Sochei, a uiologisi wiih Souiheasi Texas Uiology Associ-
aies in Beaumoni, said µaiienis musi gei scieened. "By ihe iime
symµioms aµµeai, ii's ioo laie," Sochei said.
|s |t Preveotab|e?
No. Accoiding io Sochei, no one Inows ihe aciual cause of µios-
iaie cancei.
Reseaich shows ihai geneiics, a diei high in saiuiaied fais and Af-
iican Ameiican eihniciiy incieases iisI, so ihe besi beis foi µieven-
iion aie decieasing iisI and eaily deieciion, Sochei advised.
Iiosiaie cancei is highly suivivable, if ideniifed while ihe cancei
is confned wiihin youi µiosiaie gland, Sochei said. In faci, if ihe
cancei is deiecied eaily on, an esiimaied 4u,uuu deaihs µei yeai
could be µievenied.
N|o|m|ze Yo0r 8|sk & 8e|ax
Deieciion is highesi wiih boih a ISA blood iesi and an examina-
iion (DRE).
While mosi men would iaihei ihe ieim 'digiial' in DRE iefei
io a new, innovaiive digiial lasei mechanism ihai magically checIs
iheii µiosiaie wiihoui any "µiying" insiead of iefeiiing io a µhysical
exam, ihe uncomfoiiable, yei quicI µioceduie could save youi life.
"Ten µeiceni of µaiienis have a noimal ISA, bui wiih an abnoi-
mal giowih found in ihe µhysical exam," Sochei said. "The exam
only iaIes fve seconds and ii doesn'i huii."
If any abnoimaliiies aie found, and/oi if ihe ISA level is high, ihe
µhysician will liIely iecommend fuiihei analysis, µossibly via an
uliiasound oi a bioµsy, Sochei said.
0heck0p £very 365 0ays
All men ages 5u and oldei should be iesied eveiy yeai, and Af-
iican Ameiican men oi men wiih a faihei oi bioihei who has had
µiosiaie cancei, should begin annual checIuµs ai age 4u. Beginning
µiosiaie checIuµs eailiei ihan ihese geneial iecommendaiions could
helµ you lessen youi iisI even moie.
"Women iyµically gei connecied wiih a µhysician eaily on in life,
noimally ihiough iheii OB-CYN, while men nevei go io ihe docioi,"
Sochei said. "I iell my µaiienis ihai when ihey iuin 4u, ihey need
io see a docioi once a yeai. If you waii foi a medical ieason io see a
µhysician, you could be ioo laie."

A faiher carries µiciures

C
reg Ausiin has a healihy aiiiiude
aboui being ihe "older" dad. The
owner of Beaumoni Realiy Inc. says
his career is esiablished and he has
ihe iime and ihe µaiience io deal wiih
children. Thai's a good ihing since he
has five of ihem including iwo seis
of iwins. He and his wife, Janiece,
welcomed Mary Caroline and Tara
inio ihe world when he was 4u. Then
came iwins Jonaihan and Olivia. Lasi bui noi leasi is Reece.
Six years ago, Ausiin was ai ihe Chrisius Healih & Wellness
Cenier worIing oui when a friend asIed him his age. The ques-
iion surµrised him, he said, since "guys don'i asI guys how old
ihey are." He µaused brießy io ihinI aboui ii and ihen bluried,
"I'm 48 and I have a one-year-old!" The µanic was iemµorary,
and now, ai 54, Ausiin is haµµily µareniing his Iids who range in
age from 7 io I4. "Ii's a loi of fun," he said.
The Ausiins really weren'i µlanning on having ihai many
children. "Ii jusi Iind of haµµened," Ausiin mused, noiing ihai
iwins run on his wife's side of ihe family. "We've been blessed
wiih fve. Our Suburban is full."
To Ausiin, being a good faiher means being involved in
his Iids' lives. "Ii maIes a diference," he said. A big µari of
his involvemeni comes from coaching ihem in sµoris includ-
ing baseball, basIeiball and soccer. All of his children have
been involved in sµoris since ihey were young. Ausiin says he
didn'i µush ihem bui made ihe oµµoriuniiies available io ihem.
"Sµoris are good for Iids," he believes.
Being a good faiher, Ausiin says, means always being ihere
for your Iids. "An imµoriani facior io being a good dad is really
lisiening io your children," he said. He crediis his wife as a
major µari of his success as a dad. "Ii iaIes a really good moiher
as a µariner io be a good faiher," he said. Life lessons he iries
io ieach his children include being honesi and caring io iheir
siblings and iheir friends.
His advice io new faihers is io be µaiieni and sµend iime wiih
iheir children. "Enjoy ihem," he advises. "Ii goes fasi."

informaiion. "Are you going io have a baby?" she asIed
ihe woman. The friend smiled and iold ihe liiile girl
she mighi some day. Marli assured her noi io worry.
"My dad's a delivery guy," she exclaimed. "He'll bring
you one!"
Today Marli is a high school siudeni ihinIing aboui a
career in engineering. "She's my µrincess," Iieiernelle
said. The docior and his wife, Vivian, also have iwo sons
of whom ihey are very µroud: Brandon and Raimie. "I
don'i ihinI ihere's anyihing sµecial aboui me," Iieiernelle
said, surµrised ai being asIed for an inierview. "Ii's my
children who are sµecial."
Raimie is a college siudeni who wanis io be an acior.
Iieiernelle's oldesi son, Brandon, loves ari and music and
has Down syndrome. Having Brandon frsi made Iieier-
nelle a more µaiieni faiher wiih ihe nexi iwo, he believes.
"Ierfeciion goes oui ihe window," he said, adding ihai
Brandon has "done wonderfully."
The docior always Inew he wanied io be a faiher.
"I've always loved children," he said. "I ihoughi ii would
be really cool io raise Iids - being a µari of ihai µrocess
of nuriuring and ieaching a child from infancy io aduli-
hood." Bui ii's noi a one-man job and he gives his wife
credii. "We worI as a ieam," he said. "We iry io suµµori
each oiher io gei ihe Iids io where ihey need io be."
The life lessons he iries io ieach include seiiing high
goals. "Aim high," he said. "Have a µlan."
His advice io new faihers is io realize ihai each child is
an individual wiih his or her own µersonaliiy. "Don'i iry
io maIe ihem a liiile you," he said. "Nuriure and guide
ihem as oµµosed io irying io bend ihem." Being a faiher
is having a sµecial relaiionshiµ wiih children, he believes,
one ihai is nuriuring, caring, sharing and suµµoriive.
"Faiherhood has been a joy beyond my exµeciaiions," he
said. "I'm absoluiely µroud of my children.

or Kenneih Wilgers and his wife, Holly,
eighi mighi noi be enough. The couµle
already had six children when ihey
decided io adoµi iwo more. When asIed
if ihey are done having or adoµiing
children, Wilgers hesiiaied and finally
gave a half-hearied "maybe."
The curreni brood consisis of Kenny
Jr., Ryan, Cullen, Curran, SIylar, Sheri-
dan, Mamush and Mariiu. The Wilgers
adoµied iheir lasi iwo children from Eihioµia and have noi
closed ihe door io furiher adoµiions. "Ii deµends if anybody else
needs us," Wilgers said. He can'i forgei one liiile girl he mei in
an Eihioµian orµhanage and he's well aware of ihe dire need of
ihe orµhans in Haiii afier ihe devasiaiing earihquaIe. "Those
iwo siiuaiions made us noi so sure ihai we were done," he said.
Wilgers, a µhysician wiih a family µraciice in Beaumoni,
claims his siaf is glad he's noi a µediairician. "I'd never gei any
worI done," he said. "Kids are fun!"
He crediis his wife wiih handling ihe hard µari of µareniing,
including doing all ihe research and legworI on ihe adoµiions.
"My wife is absoluiely amazing," he said. "The µari ihai I gei io
do is ihe fun µari. I gei io µlay wiih ihem."
His advice io new faihers is io relax and enjoy iheir Iids.
"Don'i exµeci µerfeciion from you or your children," he said. He
admiis he's noi a µerfeci dad. "I ihinI I could be a loi beiier,"
said Wilgers, who is also ihe medical direcior for ihe Vidor and
Bridge Ciiy fre deµarimenis. "I feel liIe I'm ioo busy."
As a docior and a µareni wiih adoµied children, Wilgers
ieaches by examµle. "I iry io ieach my Iids io iaIe care of oih-
ers," he said. "When you iaIe care of oihers, ihen your life is
more fulflled."
For him, being a good faiher means "doing ihe besi you can
io µroieci your children." Ii's also being a good examµle and
always being ihere when ihey need him, even when ihey are
grown.
Recenily, Wilgers was relaxing and waiching a movie wiih
four of his Iids. "I ihoughi io myself, how boring would life be if
ihai was all ihe children I had?"
