A patient's story:
Why one man opted for lifestyle changes instead of treatment
Ben Hunter, 64 years old, works as a film writer and director and is actively involved in various philanthropies. Ten years ago, he was much like any other man in his mid-50s: He was married with children, felt generally healthy, and had no real urinary difficulties. He tried to exercise when he could and ate a typical American diet.
After spending two years in California, where he was working on a film, Ben returned to his home on the East Coast in 1996. He contacted his doctor to schedule a routine physical exam. But his routine was about to be disrupted.
