This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
Proton Beam Therapy appears to have a lot going for it. Because there are only a few health centers that carry out this procedure it is rarely recommended during the process of diagnosis.
There is some good basic information on the Yana site at http://www.yananow.net/choices.htm#protonbeam You will see a link there to a new mailing list established by well known proton beam supporter, Fuller Jones which can be found at http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/protoninfo/
