TORONTO  -- Getting screened for possible prostate cancer or receiving a positive diagnosis can leave men perplexed and anxious about what their test results mean and their best options for further testing or treatment.

So the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada has come up with an interactive online program that it hopes will help men cut through all the extraneous information and misinformation and offer answers tailored to their individual cases.

Thanks, Debra. Though you've posted this 3 years ago, the links still work. I don't need it at the moment, but all us prostated people will need it if we live long enough.

Indeed Banjo, altho I've read STD's are now being involved. I do try to keep my eye on this, but it's hard with the differing opinions. Glad to see you here.  ;)

Sexually transmitted disease increases prostate cancer risk, so I've been told by many physicians who have had my husby on file. For him it was  because of Hep C from a blood infusion in the 80's during a surgery, after being hit broadside by a drunk driver.   The thing is we overlook STD's for all kinds of ridic reasons. They are so easily contracted without knowing it. http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/ ... key=105522

The key seems to be Trichomoniasis. http://www.emedicinehealth.com/trichomo ... cle_em.htm

No symptons for men really pisses me off.  Altho there are many STD's that have no symptons.
