Steve's First Post

Hi everyone,
My name is Steve Davies and I am Junior Biology major. I am taking this course because my grandpa was recently diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer. This diagnosis has generated a lot of talk and speculation within my family, much of which I believe to be false information. I hope to gain an adequate understanding of cancer so that I can effectively evaluate how cancer develops and spreads, as well as the most effective treatment options available. The chart I found shows that prostate cancer is the most prevalent cancer is in the U.S., indicating that we must focus on researching various methods that control the spread of this cancer to other organs of the body.
