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.

Re: commenting on a negative outlook

Thanks Don. I thought something should be said. This article I refer to had a lot of statistics, - all one sided to his point of view. Statistics are cheap and can be used and contorted in most any way one wants to use them. We can see this in every part of life these days. It is often wise to look behind the statistics and the authors to see the real picture. Jon.

Re: commenting on a negative outlook

Hi everyone,

I added a breif comment to the top of the story in question:

The author makes some rather strong statements in his story. He also cites a variety of statistics that may or may not be accurate. No doubt they reflect his personal opinions, to which he is entitled. However, be sure to use your judgment to evaluate the validity of his claims for your personal situation.

Stay safe and healthy.

Best Regards,

Re: commenting on a negative outlook

Thanks Mark, good, and tactful job! I can understand why he prefers to remain anonymous; all may not be so tactful in their responses. Wish he would have included some updates on his treatment results. By the date of his writing, he is still here and healthy enough to complain. Jon.
