Prostate Cancer International and their New Prostate Cancer Infolink, provides the best source for news and information in the world of Prostate Cancer (PCa). When I was totally confused by all of the various internet sources, this site was the one I repeatedly came back to for solid understanding and knowledge. The team at Prostate Cancer International provides objective comments and opinions to help a layperson understand the latest PCa news and information and determine what is worthwhile, and what is not.

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.

This is one of, if not THE best source of prostate cancer information on the web that is tailored for sophisticated patients and their partners caregivers rather than for scientists and physicians. The information is high-quality, well-sourced, accurately summarized, and the interpretation of it is cautious and sound.

Since I was diagnosed with cancer, finding reputable discussions on the topic and information was a priority. The folks at Prostate Cancer International delivered. This organization has touched many men I know as well. My role these days is as a Patient Advocate, a Discussion board leader (at another website) and a support group leader in Las Vegas. I readily pull up the research information that PCaI Provides and it has been well received by all. Thank you PCaI...

I appreciate the site master on Prostate Cancer Infolink being able to distill complex articles into terms a lay person can understand and the ability to just publish pertinent articles. Many have bee of great use and I have catalogued some for future reference.

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 stag iv cancer on April 8, 2010. I had a radical prostatectomy on April 13th 2010. I'm proud to say I'm a six year survivor and I'll gone thru much of the things that everyone on this site talking about. Like most men I couldn't handle it at first however; I quickly learned what was important to me. I.e. LIFE itself. If I can help anyone out there please feel free to contact me.

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

The New Prostate Cancer InfoLink is an utterly invaluable news aggregator for men and their families confronting a prostate cancer diagnosis. The site surfaces current articles and research on the subject, providing objective commentary to help you make heads or tails out of the often conflicting information that comes out. They dissect dense research into readily digestible nuggets that men can use in their deliberations and decision-making process. If you peruse the site long enough, I assure you that you will become sufficiently well-informed for virtually any conversation with your doctor, significantly reducing the intimidation factor many of us contend with.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in august 2011. My PSA was 8.44. The biopsy showed gleason score of 7and T2b stage prostate cancer.
I was 56 years old at the time with no health issue and very active. The amount of information and misinformation was overwhelming along with the stress of cancer diagnosis. The New Prostate Cancer InfoLink provided discussions and personal experiences which helped to make a decision on my treatment.

I am a PCA survivor who has robotic radical prostatectomy surgery 2 years ago and have found this site to be one of the few places where ongoing, in depth information and new developments are reported and relayed. I have a brother 7 years younger than me, so I have an incentive to keep up with current developments in treatment - so that if, God forbid, he should be diagnosed with this disease, I want to be ready to help him make good decisions.
