Are you concerned about or even facing Prostate Cancer?
Do you have questions such as “what do I do now”, “how to cope” and “why me”?
You won’t find all of the answers here, but what you will find is the experience of one man, Dr. Bjarne Gabrielsen, who has faced, and continues to face, this challenge since 1995. Within the pages of this site, are many current developments in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer, medical resources and updates, spiritual and temporal experiences gained and lessons learned by the writer over a period of over twenty two years. Posts are divided into one of four categories; general information for new patients; diagnostics, imaging and genetics; treatment information and, spiritual encouragement. Soon, these four groups will be sub-divided for easier searching in the upper right corner. An automatic e mail subscription to all blogs as they are posted is available by providing your e mail address on the upper right hand corner of this home page.
