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:
"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.
Attorney at Law.
New York, NY

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."
