My cousin has just been diagnosed with PCa.  His PSA went from 17 to 20 in a few weeks and his clinical biopsy indicated Stage III.  He is going for second opinions soon and I recomended some uros that I used.  Hope he follows through.  He knows about HW and I hope he shows up here where the real help resides.

Hi Jim,

Sorry to hear about your cousin's diagnosis. Hopefully he will take matters in hand with seeking information and come here on your say so. He will receive a warm welcome if he comes as you know. Good to be able to refer him to some good uros if needed. Keep us in the loop. It must be worrying after all you have been through yourself, but your cous couldn't  have a wiser advocate in our opinion - I am sure you will support him well. Try to get him to tune into this cyber network as he is deciding how to manage it. Take care Biker. Love Lana & CJ.
