What about treatment?

Vaccinate or Tx. If possible, prophylactic vaccination is helpful. Once infected, it responds to many antibiotics, like: streptomycin, tetracycline, chloramphenicol, gentamicin, and doxycycline. See: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/plague_(disease) for broad overview.

What about prostate cancer treatment? What kinds of issues should I think about when choosing a treatment?

Quality of life. Fortunately with early screening (psa, digital rectal exam) prostate cancer is found in early stages for many men. This typically leaves men with many options for treatment. I would recommend considering all treatment options and paying close attention to potential side effects that may be associated with each treatment. There is no one size fits all treatment.

Medical Treatment. For localized prostate ca, the treatment is local(make sense): radiation or surgery cures most(again depending on risk). For late stages, the treatment is more complicated, particularly for those "asymptomatic" patients, those with a rising psa despite of hormonal therapy. No standard answears, but I have used a variety of therapies, including "alternative" therapy. However, all are anectodal, no. Read more...
Beware of "new" And "improved" technology, that in fact is high cost and has limited long term follow up about late effects. Both surgical methods and radiotherapy suffer from the technical enthusiasm that lacks proven patient benefit. Just because it is high tech does not make it better. Most gleason 6 or less; psa 4 or less can be "watched and waited". Read more...
Informed decision. I begin most consults for low to intermediate risk prostate cancer patients discussing how the most stressful aspect about the diagnosis is trying to figure out what if anything should be done about it. The previous answers are all correct. I'd only add to remember that you are your best advocate and ultimate decision maker. Be sure that you have been presented with all standard options, pros&cons.

Can rubbing ground coffee beans on your cellulite make them seem less visible?? What about cold laser treatment for cellulite or ultrasonic cavitation

Tx for Cellulite??? All these at home remedies are worth a try but the %s are very low for improvements. Plus even the non invasive therapies I have found to be limited. Except Thermi 250 RF sessions at a fee of $400/sessions for 10 sessions seems to give unto 50% improvement.
