About a year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with Stage Four Prostate Cancer with the 2nd most aggressive form out of ten of the disease

It barely phased me. As a joke I said to the doctor, "Is that serious?" (But it reflected how I felt in my heart: no way will cancer take me, even though it has taken four out of six in my FOO. My younger brother is still alive at 67 and very healthy.) He sort of chuckled and said "Depends." What's next I asked. "39 days, not counting weekends, of Laser radiation and a special diet. The hormone shots every 3 months and pills to suppress Testosterone everyday." (I never had truly adverse or painful reactions over the course, where most were ill or burned, but I was denuded of most of the hair on my body yet not my head. My Antiperspirant became an ancient artifact.)

Maybe it is Denial. My chances of dying from this prostate cancer were very high and so many in the news talked about their battle with it and how others had died. I never saw a battle. My last blood test shows nearly zero PSA's in my blood and no metastasis.

Was it attitude, drugs or a quiet knowing such a death was not my Fate?

Likely your "knowing" that would not be your fate. Strong case for mind over matter. I'm glad to see that it worked for you.

Or, you never had cancer in the first place. I would have counseled a 2nd or even 3rd consult. Even in the worlds most medically advanced country, the odds of a screw up are astonishingly high.

rumitoid, It was dumb luck, or a misdiagnosis. I wish you continued health, and long life.

Rumitoid has a five-act play that he posts every few months or so. Act I is that he's dying. Act II is that a miracle happened. And Act III (the next one) will be the "Poor Me, I'm a Victim" act. After that it will be Act IV, "Nothing Bothers Me", and Act V, "I'm Going to Take a Break". Sometimes he adds or removes Acts, but the play will start over again probably this summer.

I was sent to the doctor that diagnosed my cancer after two blood tests showed an extremely high PSA over 50. I had two different imaging techniques to reveal the aberration in my prostate. Before the start of my radiation treatment, I had a blood test that showed the PSA at 51 and then a MRI in order to target the mass. Every treatment of radiation followed the progress with more imaging. Maybe there was a mistake in all this redundant testing but, for me, it does not seem likely.
