As a seventeenth year survivor of once life-threatening prostate cancer, I find this website to be amazingly good - one of the very best I've ever used!

A core strength is the profound expertise, caring, and energy that the sitemaster employs in bringing us reports of worthwhile new studies and also discussing those studies with us.

This is my best resource in keeping up-to-date on the fast moving field of prostate cancer research and trends.

I eagerly await new articles on "The "New" Prostate Cancer Infolink. Almost daily I come away with information from outstanding reviews - objective, expert, insightful and in easily understood language - of new research papers and important news in the world of prostate cancer. This is important to me as a survivor for twelve and a half years of a challenging case, important both in dealing with my own circumstances and also in educating myself so I can help other prostate cancer patients and interact with prostate cancer advocates. I frequently relay information from the Infolink to other internet boards on which I participate and to my support and education group. A key feature of the service is the comment interaction after each article. Hot topics draw a number of responses, including my own, with balanced and thoughtful participation by the sitemaster, and frequently with posts from prominent medical professionals. This is the most valuable site I have ever used.

I found great help encouragement and support when i found I had prostate cancer. I was given accurate information that was not available from my physician and an unbiased list of treatment options. Later I was given free medical information that eventually enabled me to decide on the treatment I had with good results.
This site save me a lot of stress and fear at a difficult time.
The contributors are very generous sharing their medical knowledge and experience free of charge for the benefit of those having a difficult time.

I've been accessing this site for the two years since I had PC surgery. Not only provides a wealth of information on diagnosis, treatment options and the latest research, but also has opportunities to post question, share experiences and otherwise benefit from contact with a wide community of cancer survivors and those just approaching their treatment and the years after that. Research is reviewed and made very accessible for all, and the various kinds of networking available at the site make it by far the best one out there for Prostate Cancer!

When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer three years ago, at 44, I went everywhere looking for information. The information here was tremendously helpful and the community was supportive. The combination of factual information and the social network is unique in my experience and the two function together well.

I am a prostate cancer survivor. I had my prostate removed on June 10, 2010. The prostate cancer survivors network has helped me a great deal, both in helping select treatment options and in the slow recovery process following the surgery. I would hope the PCSN will continue to grow and help as many prostate cancer victims as possible.

I am a prostate cancer survivor. I have had surgery in the past year. This site is a good source of timely information on what to expect from the first diagnosis of elevated PSA to a diagnosis of cancer. It gives the patient that information the doctor may be uncomfortable in discussing.

The Prostate Cancer InfoLink is where I get current information on prostate cancer treatment. It is also where I get links to cutting edge research and treatment. As a recently diagnosed cancer patient, I appreciate this site very much.

As a prostate cancer survivor I have had numerous opportunities to share my story with other men who have been diagnosed with pCa. PCI was there for me when I needed information about the disease, treatment options, and encouragement in dealing with the emotional side. Now I frequently direct other guys to the PCI website to get the same help. They have always told me how helpful the PCI site was and how much they appreciated the site being there for them. The information is personal, accurate, and non-biased.
