Mr. Guido Adelfio – Prostate Cancer – Lessons Learned

Rotarian Guido Adelfio of the Metro Bethesda club was last week’s breakfast speaker and used his time to present a Power Point presentation on cancer and more specifically on Prostate cancer—the #1 most frequent male cancer, and the #2 cancer for mortality. Lung cancer is #2 for frequency and #1 for mortality.

What causes cancer? Nobody really knows. What is Prostate cancer? Adenocarcinoma is a type of cancer that begins in spongy tissues such as prostate or breast tissue and spreads throughout the human body—a very serious disease and common in the U.S., with about 250,000 cases annually, and 30,000 deaths. Guido (a man in his 60’s) was diagnosed with the disease 2 or 3 years ago, and is currently in the process of bringing it to proper attention in the Rotary ranks.
