King Charles III

Although the prostate examination did not reveal any cancerous growth, it appears that it has been found elsewhere:

It seems that Harry is planning to visit very soon...

The openness of the Palace has been very rewarding. Well done, Sir.

Cancer, per se doesn't guarantee imminent (or even an early death).
It is said that many men with prostate cancer do not die because of it, but rather they die with it.

HM Queen Elizabeth II died age 96 (though without the complication of prostate cancer), so maybe Charles expects living way beyond his allotted three score years plus ten?

I see that Charles has moved to Sandringham, out of the public eye, and no-one can blame him for that. Given that, like his mother, he prefers homeopathic remedies, does this mean that he will eschew chemotherapy? Cancer Research UK says that there is no scientific evidence that homeopathic remedies can prevent or treat cancer.

My sister-in-law acquired breast cancer in her early 40s and followed only 'alternative medicine', - to no avail - she died far too young!

I first met her when she was 14 and, in my mind she was still a teenager when she died. :((

Since 2022, Michael Dixon has been head of the Royal Medical Household and previously held the roles of a practising GP, a fellow of the Royal College of GPs, a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians; former chair of NHS Alliance; and the chair of the College of Medicine.

Dixon was made an OBE for his services however, some reports suggest that his appointment as head received criticism due to his championing of alternative medicines such as faith healing and herbalism.

The Sunday Times reported last year that Dr Dixon once invited a Christian healer to his surgery to treat chronically ill patients, prescribed an African shrub for shoulder pain and goat weed for impotence.

He also helped develop a health initiative by the Prince's Foundation In October last year, which promoted playing the bagpipes to improve certain lung conditions and breathing difficulties.

A statement from Buckingham Palace in response to the controversy read: "Dr Dixon does not believe homeopathy can cure cancer.

I thought homeopathy was the art of showing something to water then drinking the water. There are natural products that are known to have beneficial effects - turmeric is one. Our vet recommended we give Kepler some mushroom-based product to help with her cancer because there is evidence (but not a full proper health trial) that suggests it can be helpful.

While there is nothing to suggest that a kitchen sink can cure cancer, it's worth trying everything up to that as part of a planned treatment regime.
