A common therapy for the prostate are Lupron shots to shut down testosterone, the 'kerosene' that fuels the fire of a prostate condition. You may have heard about the side effect of hot flashes or the practice of 'watchful waiting', or hoping the PSA doesn't spike despite the Lupron shots. Terrified by both prospects? Believe us, Lupron is a wonder drug.

Kim Garretson's monthly poster is featured daily on our homepage and at www.pcaw.org (Prostate Cancer Awareness Week). His book, Niches of Clarity at Gunflint, is a sardonic view of the infuriatingly awful healthcare practices and lazy cavalier behavior by men that together give us today's prostate cancer epidemic.

"Instead of adding to the Web's voluminous text resources, I chose to modernize pulp fiction magazine covers from the 30's to the 60's. (See www.MansGland.com ) Why? Because I believe smiling at the absurdity of the disease is one of many coping and healing paths to follow," she says.

"My Requests: Women viewers: Please lead healthy men by the ear to this page and make them look. Healthy Men: Glance, grimace, get a PSA. Men with Prostate Cancer: Hey, try laughing in the face of dread. It helps." Kim can be reached at E-Mail.
