Was able to obtain valuable information about my health issues with my prostate and gained vital insight about the disease of cancer of the prostate. Very comforting to have people who have experienced similar symptoms/results and finding out what they did specifically to fight this horrible disease.

I've had two negative biopsies in a row because of PSA out of range, and this page has been so helpful finding information regarding CP and its treatment alternatives, at the same time sharing my issues with other people it`s kind of comforting.

When you have been diagnosed of Prostate Cancer you want to seek all the information you can. You go to Institutions like Prostate Cancer International, who were so willing to help me to show me the way, to calm me down, and let me know I was not alone. This was very comforting, healing, really a wonderful feeling to have this group give me the support I was looking for. I appreciate so much having this organization provide the support when we are in dire need. God Bless this organization. Carlos J.Mills

I receive many newsletters electronically and your "new prostate cancer infolink" is among the first that I open. I like especially how you qualify the news items to preclude misunderstanding while keeping your presentation clear and accessible. If you want an example, I attended one of the Pivot trial presentations. Your reporting is the best I've read. Please keep up the great work. My only problem with the infolink is to correctly read and type the blocked-in e-mail informationt at the end of an article.

This web site has been an excellent resource for various information, including treatment options, related to prostate cancer with which I was diagnosed about a year back. Unlike some of the other similar sites, they have excellent persons, including medical doctors, putting the latest prostate cancer information in proper perspective as well as answering the related questions in the user forums.

In my opinion, every male who is old enough to be concerned with the possibility of having prostate cancer should read this web site. Every male who has an elevated PSA should read this web site. Every male who has prostate cancer should read this web site. Every male who has been treated for prostate cancer should read this web site. Indeed, every physician and every surgeon whose practice involves diagnosis or treatment of prostate cancer should read this web site. I stumbled on the Prostate Cancer Infolink during a web search, and the information and advice I received helped me to make treatment decisions which changed my life so much for the better that it seemed miraculous.

I am an advanced Prostate cancer patient. This site provides much needed info regarding new treatments and clinical trials. They even allow my remarks to stand when I disagree with their bias for using radiation treatments. They deserve to be mentioned for their commitment to patients in my condition.

A shill for x-ray treatments, but beside that, a source of info about current news in the PCa world. He still allows me to post on his site. I can disagree with him but this is a source of CURRENT info. This field is a moving target and patients are very hungry for news.

I would temper his advise with other sources.
malecare (who reviewed here) is a good source.
My site could be of interest if you would like a cure for early stage PCa.
pcact@blogspot.com Watchful waiting is NUTS!!!
Miliken thinks there will be a cure for PCa around 2015. I hope I am still alive to live it.

I was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer so I wanted as much information and support as I could get. This site is very helpful and supportive: if I have any questions about treatment I ask them and I always get a quick and full response.As a layman my condition seems quite complex, with many possible treatments combined with the possible decision to not have any treatment. Thanks to this site and my doctor's advice, I have now decided to have a radical prostatectomy as the odds of living longer after this treatment are more favourable that without.So it's a big thanks to the infolink people.

I am the daughter of a Prostate Cancer (PC) patient. There is so much developing in the fight against Prostate Cancer right now, and it can be quite difficult to "run across" all the valuable information that is out there. THE 'NEW' PROSTATE CANCER INFOLINK does a wonderful job of putting a great deal of all this info in one place, making it much easier to keep apprised of progress in the fight against PC. I consult it every day and have discovered information that has been helpful to my dad (resulting in a drop in his PSA) that we were not otherwise aware of. Thank you Prostate Cancer International for this wonderful service!!
