PSA Rising provides prostate cancer news, information and support

Our mission is to provide prostate cancer news, information and support to empower men to avoid, overcome, survive and/or live with this disease with well-being and dignity.

What makes our mission distinctive is that we have always focused on gathering and reporting information from a patient-centered, evidence-based standpoint. In doing so we aim to:

  • Alert the public to prostate disease and prostate cancer
  • Inform the public about prevention and early detection of prostate cancer
  • Inform patients of treatment options along with risks and benefits
  • Empower patients to take an active role in selecting the best treatments
  • Push for better treatment options for men with recurrent and advanced metastatic prostate cancer
  • Raise standards of prostate cancer care and advocate for accessible quality care for all patients
  • Provide information about clinical trials and biotechnology advances

Sticking to the mantra News, info, & support we try keep this web site non-dogmatic. Psa-rising.com has always been independent. At the same time we strive to help newcomers feel at home among the range of support groups and community associations available on and off line.
