I was half asleep last night when I thought I heard something about  Nightly News tonight 6/4 having a segment on prostate cancer. It might be about the new drug Lpilimumab. Just thought I'd give a heads up.

Richard,

I'm in Connecticut so it's NBC out of NYC. I'm trying to search for the program guide but I'm not having any luck.

I didn't hear the bit about tonight being about Prostate Cancer, but I know that Brian Williams on NBC has been doing a cancer series.  Last night was on brain cancer.

Brian Williams hosts Nightly News so he must be doing the Prostate Cancer one. It's probably only a short segment but I'll take any information I can get. My husband is just starting this journey and I aim to help him in anyway I can.

Hi all,
Here is a link to NBC Nightly News Video. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032619/#24972121
Once there, type prostate cancer into the search window on the lower left, and the report will pop into the playlist. Click on it and it will load automatically.
Best,
Mike

Well it did not do me any good. 

 I have been on Proscar for a few years. 

The first study about it causing a more aggressive PCa was a concen to me.  It still is as drug companies have been know to lie and sqew data to their benefit.  I have, they tell me, a very aggressive PCa.
