  • Uro Today – magazine where medical articles can be found archived.
  • Malecare - downloads on Advanced Cancer, clinical trials, foreign language materials, help for patients and families - transportation, medication, treatments, housing.
  • Prostate Cancer Treatment Research Foundation (PCTRF) - was established in November 2010 to help people interested in, and affected by prostate cancer through education and research.

    The primary goal of the foundation is to help people make better decisions about prostate cancer treatment.

    We will accomplish this goal by supporting and promoting educational resources relevant to prostate cancer treatment such as the Prostate Cancer Results Study Group and the PCa Commentary by making their results readily available:

    • to patients, and the groups that support them,
    • to medical professionals, as they seek to provide the best care for their patients,
    • to policy-makers, charged with allocating resources for the best outcomes.
