PROSTATE CANCER FREE MISSION
The Prostate Cancer Free Foundation is here to help you quickly learn about the prostate gland, cancer of the prostate, prostate cancer treatments and treatment side effects. If you are recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, you have a choice in your prostate cancer treatment. If diagnosed early, there are many options. The decision can be more complicated for patients with more advanced disease where the risk of cancer relapse is greatly increased. Relapse or recurrence is the return of cancer, requiring additional treatment. This website features information to help you determine which prostate cancer treatments are the most successful at eliminating localized cancer. Increase the odds of remaining prostate cancer free for the rest of your life.
When prostate cancer is discovered early, the risk of relapse of recurrence can be low. But if you have been diagnosed with cancer that has spread, or is more aggressive, you may fall into the Intermediate to High Risk Group. For men in these groups, choosing the best treatment, or combination of treatments provides the best chance to remain in remission following treatment. Recurrence is discovered by regularly scheduled PSA blood tests, at established intervals following treatment. Prostate Cancer Free offers a study comparing the different prostate cancer treatment outcomes for over 129,000 men, highlighting which men remained in remission and for how many years. See which treatments are most likely to keep men in remission, with no return of cancer.
The Prostate Cancer Free Foundation is a NON-PROFIT 501-C. The Foundation is completely dependent upon donations. Your tax deductible donation(s) enables the Foundation to continue the valuable work of educating men and their loved ones about prostate cancer.

Remission versus Recurrence?

The Study is available with the new, just released booklet, to help you learn about prostate cancer.
