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.

I just updated my post under Allen Z and my history is there. I am looking for advice/opinions on whether or not to start Lupron. My PSA is 1.9, but actually could be closer to 4 since I take Finasteride. My oncologist wants to start Lupron at 4, but I don't want to. I completely understand that there is no standard, gold or otherwise, as to when to start the protocol of ADT, just wondering if anyone has come across any current data on the subject. I of course have searched the web and have come up the usual non-answers--I am not being cynical, it's just the nature of the disease I know.
