US Senator Tom Coburn Prostate Cancer Surgery

To lend further credence to the importance of early prostate cancer detection, U.S senator Tom Coburn has just recently undergone surgery to treat his cancer.

This was because of the early detection of the cancer way before it had the chance to spread outside the prostate. As is well known by now, it’s more difficult treating cancer that has spread outside the prostate and even into the bones.

TULSA, Okla. — U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn is expected to make a full recovery after undergoing surgery for prostate cancer in Tulsa, a spokesman for the Oklahoma lawmaker said Tuesday.

The Republican’s cancer was detected in an early stage and he underwent surgery Monday, spokesman John Hart said.

“He is expected to make a full recovery and return to his full-time duties later this month,” Hart said in a statement. He declined to release details.

Coburn’s surgery was first reported in The Oklahoman.

Coburn, 63, a physician from Muskogee, revealed in 2003 that he had been diagnosed with colon cancer and had undergone surgery and chemotherapy. He told a reporter at the time, “you should be writing about Medicaid and Medicare instead of my health.”

Coburn also was treated for malignant melanoma in 1975, and an irregular heartbeat in 2008.

A former member of the U.S. House, Coburn kept his pledge to leave Congress after three terms and returned full time to his medical practice in Muskogee.

He ran for Senate in 2004, and was re-elected to a second term last year. He has promised not to run again in 2016. Read more.

As you can see, it’s still a good idea to go for yearly tests to find out whether you have this condition or not. The earlier, the better the chances of effective treatment and even cure.
