The Prostate Posse
If you've opted to take Lupron shots as part treatment for your prostate cancer, chances are you've been feeling a lot less like your King of the Jungle self and more like the mouse of the house. Here's how New York Times columnist Dana Jennings describes his treatment:
"Essentially, my Lupron shots are inducing biochemical (but reversible) castration. Besides the hot flashes and shrinking testicles, another potential side effect is that a man's breasts grow larger and more sensitive."
If your experience is making you feel deflated, here's a list of some pretty manly men who beat prostate cancer and came out the other side of treatment just as masculine as ever.
Robert Goulet—Laugh all you want about his early career in musicals, but the American Moustache Institute named its "Robert Goulet Mustached American of the Year" award after him in 2008.
Arnold Palmer—Not only is this man one of the greatest golfers in history, but he popularized what is quite possibly the world's most refreshing beverage. The Arnold Palmer is half lemonade, half iced tea and 100% delicious.
"Stormin'" Norman Schwarzkopf—The general in charge of Operation Desert Shield said of prostate cancer to Time Magazine: "For me, it was like war," he says. "First thing you do is learn about the enemy."
Nelson Mandela—The former South African President opted for radiation therapy. He beat the cancer and recently celebrated his 90th birthday.
Other famous prostate cancer survivors include Rudolph Giuliani, Harry Belafonte and John Kerry.
Feel free to pick one of them and develop a bromance as you go through treatment. Read about their life story for inspiration and imagine them high-fiving you as you fight your way through.
