The prostate cancer research institute (pcri) mission is to improve the quality of men's lives by supporting research and disseminating information that educates and empowers patients, families and the medical community. Pcri accomplishes this by 1)empowering patients with knowledge of the most effective known treatment options that limit the risks of complications and side effects, 2)encouraging physicians to stay medically current and help them access and actively engage with top experts in the field, 3) providing information based upon peer-reviewed medical research, literature, and reputable studies that will enable the patient to knowledgeably participate with his health care team in developing the best individual treatment strategy, 4) providing support research that can most immediately improve patient outcomes,

Reviews for Prostate Cancer Research Institute
I called their hotline in 2006 and spoke with Harry (now deceased) who stressed how young men with prostate cancer need to get their surgery done soon with a Dr who has done more than 150 DaVinci robotic prostatectomies.
At age 43, my disease turned out to be Gleason 3+3 stage 2C with lymphatic vessel involvement and a PSA of 3.9. After immediate surgery, the PSA was under 0.01 for 2 years. The cancer is back now with a PSA of 0.013, but I am told my low Gleason 3+3 means my cancer is unlikely to metastasize or kill me.
My surgeon said I would have died at age 45 (I am now 49) if I had not had treatment.
