Recommended web sites and books

When men hear they have prostate cancer many of us to do a lot of research, sometimes too much research, and mostly on the web. The amount of information and advice is overwhelming. Most if it is good and, of course, there are some crack-pots out there who are more than happy to send us down some weird rabbit holes of their own making.

The links and suggestions we make here are provided by men who do have prostate cancer and have done their homework. We want you to have clean information so you can make the best choices for yourself.

None of our recommendations are driven by money, we are a very small outfit and this is defiantly not a for profit venture. If you have links or sites you found useful please let us know and we’ll go check them out.
