I can not say enough about how useful and helpful THE "NEW" PROSTATE CANCER INFOLINK has been to me over the last couple of years. It is a great place to keep up to date on the latest news on the topic and to give and share feedback on the many aspects of the topic. The Sitemaster keeps us all informed and never fails to respond to any questions.

I an an advanced cancer patient and I have gone through a lot of treatment. Dx'd at 49 years old with aggressive cancer that relapsed after primary treatment. I done a great deal of research and participated in several website/fourms. This site is the best. Mike Scott (sitemaster) does an outstanding job in providing even handed advice and education to patients and care givers. I really hate having cancer and this is one place I know I can go to get help advice or just a pep talk.

The New Prostate Cancer Info Link is fantastic. I received C yber Knife treatment in March 2012. The Info Link was helpful in helping me decide on going for it. It is very informative.

I found the The "New" Prostate Cancer InfoLink Social Network a couple of months ago after I was diagnosed with a low-level form of Prostate Cancer. Of course, I tried to obtain as much information as possible from the Internet. I did not really know much (and was still in a state of shock about the diagnosis) when I decided to describe my situation on the site. Within a matter of a few hours, I received a personal reply from Mike Scott of the Network and then another response the following day. His responses were long and detailed, and personally oriented to me. I was extremely surprised and gratified. No other resource on the Internet gave me that type of personal service. signed: Dave Kalstrom

The "New" Prostate Cancer Infolink was a great aid to myself and my spouse as I had to navigate the options that can be dizzying at times. On top of that, the network of people were very helpful as I was going through my chosen treatement. It was very comforting to know that someone, very knowledgeable was just a few clicks away. I highly recommend this site.

I was diagnosed with PCa back in May 2010. Having been under pressure and wanting to learn from others who have gone through this experience I resorted to Prostate Cancer International. I have provided my PSA tests results, Gleason score, CT scans, etc.. and sought advice on how to proceed with treatment. Prostate Cancer International was great as many of its members responded with advice on how to proceed, what to watch for and what to say and ask the medical specialists who were sought by me for consultation. All this helped make my journey quite a learned and comfortable one, given the circumstances. After more than a year with PCa and initial radiation treatment, I continue to link up with Prostate Cancer International and its wonderful and helpful volunteers.

Prostatecancerinfolink.net is at the top of my favourites page.

It is the best site that I have found for constantly updating itself with relevant well explained articles on developments in the prostate cancer field.

The collation of information by this site is excellent. It saves me trawling through the half dozen other sources I used to look at and piecing together my own news feed.

I always find the latest developments in the PCa field at this site.

Highly recommended!

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!

I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer June 2010 and in doing internet research I cam across their forum. Within a few hours reading and posting my concerns and questions, I had the answers to approach my disease with confidence and the right questions to ask my Dr.
The people in the forum and Dr Scott were there to guide comfort and help me through the whole journey. the people there had been through it and willingly shared their knowledge. I tried other forums but always came back to this one for answers.

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.

In the nearly 3 years since my diagnosis of prostate cancer, I have visited the prostate cancer infolink.ning site almost daily. It was a great source of information after my initial dagnosis; a great source of support during my recuperation from surgery; a great source to "compare notes" with other survivors; and a great place where I can help to provide support for others, both newly diagnosed and long-term survivors. It is wonderful to have a place to speak openly and frankly with others who are walking the same path due to PCa.
