I don't know anything about you. You'll have to send me some information.
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.
This information was very valuable to me because i got to read facts of personal experiences that relate to my situation. I have not had the oppertunity to hear from people with similar symptons and situations. It made me relax a little more reading about others who are facing similar problems. The people who take part in this were quick to answer my questions and it helped me make decisions about what type of treatment to choose. I am very thakful that i became a part of this group and i appreciate the help.
Very reassuring to be able to contact the experts behind the website and get their opinions on your situation as you progress through your own concer pathway
I am the spouse of a prostate cancer survivor. During the early days of the disease I used this sight to gain information from other cancer victims. After the surgery (non-nerve sparing) I read about how people coped. During radiation and hormone therapy we did the same. This site was a saving grace. It made me feel less alone. There is almost more information than a person can read, but that is a good aspect.
New Prostate Cancer Infolink NPCI is an operational service of PCI. I needed to find out as much as possible about prostate cancer when my father was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer. He succumbed to prostate cancer two years ago. Since I first started following it, NPCI has been an excellent an frequently updated source of information about appropriate prostate cancer treatment and new developments in treatment. Obviously I'm biased, but NPCI is probably the most readily accessible source of patient appropriate information about the PSA screening test for prostate cancer. In addition to timely news commentary, notification of published research and new clinical trials, NPCI also provides sophisticated, on point, response to questions and comments on new postings. NPCI is an awesome resource for those interested in prostate cancer treatment.
Diagnosed and RP in May 2007. The info link has beeb a beam of hope without having to become involved in support group or otherwise. I read it almost every night. Very informative without agenda of promotion.
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2007, radical prostatectomy in May 2007, with chemical recurrance in May 2009. The aprostate Cancer Intl. site has provided invaluable information on many aspects of this journey, and I read it on a daily basis. It has been a better source of useful information than resources that I have investigated and/or purchased. I have shared information with my treating Urologisrt/surgeon that he was unaware of. This site provides excellent information and support to those of us that have this disease.
This November will be the 5th anniversary of my high grade prostate cancer diagnosis. After much research and consults with conventional and alternative doctors, I made the decision to go the alternative route and with God's help, my two alternative doctors, my conventional urologist and personal changes on diet, exercise and mind monitoring I am better now than prior to the diagnosis. It is very sad and discomforting that you maintain a site that just promotes the VERY process that most honest doctors are acknowledging that it is very far from providing a cure for this type; actually any type of cancer.
When my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer this year. Without "New" Prostate Cancer InfoLink, the amazing moderators, contributors, medical specialists and treatment links it provides, I think we would have emotionally drowned. We got a response to my first post within a couple of hours-unheard of on most internet medical info sites. The support and information we got allowed us to calm down, investigate our options, make a decision and be hopeful. This cancer will be an ongoing battle but at least I have a reliable source to turn to when we need fresh troops.
This is a great site and helpful for patients and family to discuss shared issues. It also promotes advocacy and awareness and is well run.
