This social network serves as a source of information, support and plain, good old-fashioned kindness through my father's five-year struggle and death from prostate cancer. The people from this group became my friends, a community in the real sense of the word. I never felt pressured to do or buy or contribute to anything, and received in return, kind words and warmth that I could not have done without. Kudos to the organizers, and may they win every award in the book. Thank you, and please do not hesitate to contact me for further information and commendation.

We have made several attempts to contact this individual and assist him/her in unsubscribing from the services we provide. HOWEVER, we wish to be clear that we are unable to find any evidence that the individual is, in fact, subscibed to our services either directly or through either Twitter or Facebook. In addition, as yet, he or she has not responded to e-mail requests for more information. We would be pleased to try to resolve this problem if we could, but ...

I have been treated for Prostate Cancer, and have a family history of Prostate Cancer. I am also a physician and surgeon. I think that this website is the most thorough, impartial way to stay up to date with the latest news and reports of medical information with regard to Prostate Cancer, whether you are a medical doctor or a layman, a patient or a family member, or just interested in the subject. There is always a space for commentary, with a well-reasoned response from the "site-master" after each discussion. I recommend it with the highest possible praise.

This is an incredibly valuable website for the latest information about all aspects of prostate cancer-from controversies about screening or active surveillance, to the lastest information about surgical and radiation treatment, side effects of those treatments and also treatment of recurrent or distant disease. There is expert review of recent research, put into easily understood words for non medical personel. "Sitemaster" does and excellent job responding to comments as well. As both a physician (general surgeon) and prostate cancer patient myself, I am very grateful that it exists and have found little else online that compares as favorably.

I was concerned as a 59 year old with prostate tests. This site helps men'look at facts and not fear. My generation was not informed about prostate health until guys lost much o their sexual ability from PC. We need go replace fear with facts. Some doctors miss that point. Thanks for this site!

I was looking for answers and general information about prostate cancer. There were no support groups in my area that I could find. Dr. Scott explained what my test scores meant and encouraged me to keep looking for someone who cared about my outcome as much as I did. I found such a group and am very relieved to find this solution. Without a hands on support group, this web site and chant room was very helpful.

I am a retired physician. When I gave up the profession 15 years ago there was a definite lack of information/knowledge about prostatic cancer. This was true in both the public realm and most tragically in and among the medical profession. I shudder to think of the men we sent for TURs without other consideration than urinary flow. We just did not know better. Now I find myself a victim of my own ignorance. Since developing prostatic cancer I have begun to try to educate myself on the subject. I have read literally thousands of papers and reviews. Indeed I am now far better educated but really unable to help myself. I have searched for answers and found many contradictions. In this aearch for a information I have found several on-line sites which offer real information. Among these I find I read the "New Prostate Infolink" most often. Good information well presented. Still not everyting I could hope for but the best available.

I was able to gain valuable knowledge from this website that has afforded me and my husband to make wise choices regarding treatment options. This website has also been a blessing to us in that it is nice to know we are not alone in this fight. I am truly thankful for the people associated with this site.
