Prostate Cancer Survivors






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.

Video Website

Dr Gerald Chodak has created a video website PROSTATE VIDEOS to help men and their significant others with prostate cancer. He has asked me to put a link from the Yana site to his site and I thought it might be an idea to ask some of you good people to evaluate the site before I do that.

So if any of you have the time and the inclination would you care to go along there and let me know:

1. If you think that the linkage would be useful, especially for newly diagnosed people and

2. If so where the best place would be for the Link on the Yana site.

Thank you in advance.

All the best

Re: Video Website


I watched two of his videos, prostate screening tests and managing an abnormal psa or digital rectal exam. I liked them a lot, he was open and honest and didn't have a tilt either way in his presentation. So I'd recommend a link to at least those two videos and will let others make a decision on a link to the site in general. As for the location of the link maybe on the home page links page.

Here's a link to the videos I watched.

Re: Video Website

Like most sites, not much there on the risks treatment involves.

Would he include links to YANA?

Re: Video Website

I also watched a couple of the videos and I have to agree with The Stranger. The doctor does not seem to favor one treatment over another. However, he missed an opportunity to use the video medium better. He only talks in the video. He does not use any visual aids. There were instances where adding a simple picture would have made his point better.
