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.
I found your first query interesting, so since I am currently in bio-chemical failure (PSA of 4.4 after a nadir of .1 after proton therapy) I sent an email to my oncologist and asked about the usefulness of a free PSA test. His reply was "a free PSA tells us nothing. It is not helpful when you have had cancer."
Not very enlightening but at least he responded.
