I've been surprised at the quality and depth of *most* of the Wikipedia pages I've seen on medical subjects. Especially useful are the drug pages. If you are about to start treatment with any drug that you aren't familiar with, I highly recommend typing the drug name into the Wikipedia search box. I have found important information on the Wikipedia drug pages that wasn't in any of the paperwork that came with the drug. The pages are generally well-referenced as well.

Another good page with a list of treatments for prostate cancer is titled "Management of prostate cancer". It has quite a bit of good info on it, but I think there are probably some folks around here who could add a lot more on a variety of treatments. Anyone can edit it, but it is best if you sign up.

I also found the staging of our cancer on the Wikapedia to be pretty extensive and descriptive.
