I heard a doctor on the Doctor channel on the XM radio Mens Health show Wednesday night talk about this study that was recently published.

I couldn't find a direct link to the article. But if you Google

popular online risk calculator tool questioned

you can get there.

Here is the link...

When I first saw this calculator I didn't like it. It is far from the quality of the nomograms available at the Memorial Sloan Kettering website. This calculator, which is linked in the article, is pretty much useless...

I am 63 dx last april,psa 19.5, bios positive 10 of 10 at mostly 90 %, clear bone scans and cts, completing 44 imrt next monday, 4 months of 30 day lupron. Want to do minimum lupron without making critical mistake. Have read Euro studies suggesting intermintent as in 6 months have same sucess rates as continuos. Having very difficult time with ht on all levels. Any feedback would be appreciated. Cyrus1

cyrus1,

Your question may well get lost because it is attached to a thread with a completely different topic.  I suggest you start a new thread.
