The "New" Prostate Cancer InfoLink Social Network is a service of Prostate Cancer International and is closely associated with the core information and daily news made available through The "New" Prostate Cancer InfoLink. We welcome patients, family members, physicians, researchers, and anyone else who is seeking information about what's happening on Planet Prostate Cancer.

If you want to remain anonymous on this network ... do not use your real name when you sign in. Use a pseudonym, or just your first name and an initial.

One of our primary goals is to help newly diagnosed men to come to the best possible decision for them about a specific course of action. Given two men with exactly the same clinical characteristics, the best possible decision for man A may be very different to the best possible decision for man B.

"Welcome Dr. Z. So Seattle has a lot of good urologists, some of the best being associated with the University of Washington and the Fred Hutcheson Canc er Center. A PSA of 4.6 is actually not that unusual for a man of your age, and is rather more…"

"Welcome Lee. Dr. Patel is supposed to be very competent (although I have never met him myself). What sort of information can we help you with?"

"Paul: I'm not a doctor and I haven't examined you, so I have no ability to tell you what might be more or less likely to be correct, It prostatitis a possibility? Sure it is."
paul Mcquilkin left a comment for E. Michael D. ("Mike") Scott
"Mike saw the urologist today, I have done two weeks of cipro, he says he wants me to do 4 more weeks before he will schedule biopsy. He thinks possible prostititis and to do biopsy now could be harmful.  sound rational? "

"Paul: Well do make it clear that you are VERY anxious, and that you would really appreciate it if they could schedule the biopsy as early as possible. You could aslo ask about having what is known as a multiparametric MRI done to see if it can help…"
paul Mcquilkin left a comment for E. Michael D. ("Mike") Scott
"Thank you for the response, the nurse at the urologist said they would take urine sample, but probably not do biopsy on the first visit, at this point my main concern is if i have cancer and has it spread to where they can't do robotic surgery."
E. Michael D. ("Mike") Scott left a comment for paul Mcquilkin
"Paul: It's normal to be scared (although there are, of course, men who pretend they aren't, ... but they really are, often very so). I know that telling you this doesn't make the fear go away. I am telling you this only so that you…"
E. Michael D. ("Mike") Scott commented on paul Mcquilkin's status
"Hi Paul. It's hard to answer that question with precision. It depends on who you are seeing, but I would expect any decent urologist to -- GIve you a repeat digital rectal exam -- Draw blood for a repeat PSA test -- Schedule you for a biopsy…"
