Managing Prostate Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. This video will help you understand how to manage it. Prostate cancer is a type of cancer that forms in a man's prostate gland. Most prostate cancer is slow growing and may not cause any symptoms or problems. However, it's very important to have a follow up care plan. This includes taking prescribed medications as directed by your doctor. Take note of any side effects and tell your doctor. Ask your doctor what to do if you missed a dose. If you can't afford your medication, ask your doctor about other options to get your medications. Talk to your doctor before taking over-the-counter supplements or herbal medicines. Go to all appointments for your doctor's visits and lab tests. Keeping these appointments allows your doctor to check your condition and see if you need further treatment. If you have had prostate surgery or radiation therapy follow any instructions you were given. You may need to make some of the following healthy lifestyle changes: don't smoke and limit how much alcohol you drink. Both of these activities may increase your cancer risk. Cut down on salt and foods high in fat, such as fast food. Eat a healthy diet with more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. A healthy diet may reduce the risk of the cancer coming back. Become physically active. Daily exercise and activities can make you feel better. Keep in mind that some cancer treatments can make you feel very tired. Ask your doctor what you can do to help you feel less tired. Knowing you have cancer can be overwhelming. You may have worries about things like your condition and how it affects your family, treatments and hospital stays, medical bills, and your job. Fortunately, there are ways to cope with this. Remember that your doctor and health care team are there to answer any questions you have. The following sources of support can help you cope with your concerns: social workers, church leaders, counselors, and support groups. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions about your treatment plan, medications or lifestyle changes to help you manage prostate cancer.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.

We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have afforded to have been without."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
