I live with very advanced prostate cancer in Melbourne Australia. I am also involved in academic research, albeit not medical. PCI offers me the perfect gateway to the most up-to-date science research relevant to my situation. Plus insightful and realistic explanations and commentary. It has helped me understand the options available to me now and in the clinical trial pipeline. I attend an excellent cancer research hospital that is at the leading edge, so PCI helps me ask intelligent questions and get down to details. I will continue to trust and depend on the excellent reporting by PCI.

I regularly follow the prostate cancer news on the prostatecancerinfolink.net website. This is my primary means of educating myself about new developments, and is an indispensable tool for me. Mike Scott and Allen Edel are amazing, both in the time and energy they put into preparing articles, and also in responding to readers' comments!

Hi,
I am extremely grateful for keeping me aware about the news and trends in prostate cancer treatments after total prostatectomy, which I had to undergo in November 2014, at the highly specialized Martini-clinic in Hamburg, Germany.
Your updates help to provide some clarity on expectations for future therapeutic measures, in case my PSA increases further.
Your comments hep to realize the controversial trends in postop treatments.
Please continue the way you work and help us all to keep us updated.
Thanks,, Peter Koerfgen, Switzerland

The "New" Prostate Cancer Infolink, under the auspices of Prostate Cancer International, is one of a kind. I know that I can read the Infolink's analysis of any new study or publication and rely on that analysis completely.

I rely on The New Prostate Cancer InfoLink--a part of Prostate Cancer International--to provide me with daily e-mails concerning current issues regarding prostate cancer. Those e-mails are extremely well written and very informative, and provide links to the studies, reports, and articles that the e-mails are discussing. I rely on those e-mails to keep me current on what is going on in the field of prostate cancer.

I have followed The "New" Prostate Cancer Infolink since prior to my radiation treatment for prostate cancer 4 years ago. I find most of the articles interesting (but I must admit some are over my head technically). Still worth following to see what's new in treatment and past results. Especially today's article "Does ADT increase risk for all types of dementia?" as I had that regimen in conjunction with my radiation treatment.

This is probably the best source of unbiased reviews of reports, studies, and research related to prostate health issues including BPH and Pca. I rely on Prostate Cancer International to keep track of published research and provide reviews of the most relevant and timely issues. Without the work of PCI, I (and others) would have no way of keeping abreast of prostate cancer issues and research.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer 8 years ago. I did a great deal of research and found Prostate Cancer International to be by far the best website. Because of their excellent information I chose Active Surveillance, before it was well known, as a good choice for me and some patients. For me it delayed having to have surgery and its unfavorable side effects for only 4 years but for many it can delay the need for surgery or other treatment indefinitely.

The New Prostate Cancer Infolink web site has been a god send to me. The wealth of information with excellent commentary by the moderator providing balanced conclusions led me several years ago to go on active surveillance before it was popular. This saved me so far from an operation and the almost certain bad side effects. Tom Loucks
