A Great Read for All - whether newly diagnosed or following up after taking action

I found this great handout from the University of California at San Francisco while I was doing my research. I thought I would post the link so that others may glean something from it.

One of the things it answers very clearly is what do the different PSA tests and levels mean after taking action with one of the alternatives. The question comes up a lot because the guidelines seem to differ as to what is a good PSA test following surgery, radiation, cryo, etc. This books explains it very well.

I hope this helps someone,

Sonny
