Admin posted a topic in Articles on other sitesThere are five Thursdays in this month. Each Thursday I aim to present one of the YouTube videos from the PCRI. This video today is about diet for men with prostate cancer, by Mark Moyad, an old friend of ours. And a reminder that we have a few videos of our own on the JimJimJimJim channel: https://www.youtube.com/jimjimjimjim/videos Including an audio YouTube video of Mark Moyad on one of our phone-in meetings: Mark Moyad Prostate Cancer Research Report 2017: “Dr. Moyad is arguably the world’s leading medical expert on dietary supplements, but he’s not quick to recommend them to everyone.” (from the Editors of Prevention Magazine). He currently occupies an endowed position, which was created and funded entirely by the patients he has helped over the past 25+ years. He is the Jenkins/Pokempner Director of Preventive/Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical Center in the Department of Urology. The Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI) is an important source of information for about prostate cancer for patients, families, and the medical community. As part of their mission to empower men and their caregivers they make YouTube videos.
Admin posted a topic in Articles on other sitesThis video today is about weight training for men on hormone therapy for prostate cancer. Hormone therapy is also called 'Androgen Deprivation Therapy' (ADT) because it robs a man of androgens. The main androgen is testosterone. Androgens fuel prostate cancer.

JimJimJimJim posted a topic in Announcements, meetings and other resourcesSorry, this is the wrong website if you are newly diagnosed with localised prostate cancer and trying to decide on a prostate cancer treatment. This is a website for men who: are diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer (where the cancer has grown through the wall of the prostate capsule and is growing outside it - a cancer which has been staged as T3 or T4); OR who have recurrent prostate cancer (where the cancer has been treated but it comes back later). If you don't know how prostate cancer is staged or what T3 and T4 mean, Jim has prepared a video explaining prostate cancer stage For men who are newly diagnosed with localised prostate cancer, here are some things I and other men and our partners found useful deciding on our prostate cancer treatment: Consulting several doctors I saw 3 surgeons and 2 radiation oncologists. Starting again I would also have included a medical oncologist. Local support group I attend the excellent Brisbane Prostate Cancer Support group (Convenor Peter Dornan, phone (07)3371915 ) You can find your local support group on the website of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia http://pcfa.org.au or search Google for "prostate cancer foundation australia" In the USA, http://UsToo.com lists support groups.
