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 ... please 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 Keith. So anyone diagnosed with Gleason 8 prostate cancer has high-risk disease and needs early treatment, particularly at your relatively young age. Obviously I have no idea where you live or what type of doctors you may have seen to date,…"

"The way your doctor seems to be treating you looks very reasonable to me. You have both low-risk prostate cancer (but NOT very low-risk) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (an enlarged prostate). If you prostate size keeps falling and your PSA keeps…"

"Is your PSA level falling of its own accord or has your doctor given you something to treat an enlarged prostate?"
E. Michael D. ("Mike") Scott left a comment for Algirdas
"Dear Algidas: It sounds as though you may have relatively low-risk prostate cancer. If I was you, I would want to ask my doctor exactly how much cancer he had found in my prostate when he gave me the biopsy (e.g. 1 core out of 12 or more than…"

"Welcome Stephen. Unfortunately I have to tell you that a PSA level of 383 ng/ml is normally associated with an EXTREMELY high probability of a diagnosis of advanced or metastatic prostate cancer. You need, ideally, to see a urologic oncologist or a…"
