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.

RP as you are no doubt aware is a localised treatment for a tumour that has not either breached or just breached the walls of the prostate. So I am not to sure what the rationale of your medical oncologist would be if they are recommending RP?
