A cancer diagnosis can be earth shattering. While treatments are available, and prostate cancer has a relatively high survival rate, battling the disease is not easy.
According to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, there are about 3 million men living with prostate cancer in the United States alone. It’s the most common non-skin cancer in the country.
If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, the following blogs provide some of the best resources on the web in your search for support and information.
Advanced Prostate Center from Malecare
Founded in 1997, Malecare is a nonprofit men’s cancer survivor support group with a focus on supporting underserved communities, like cancer survivors who are ethnic minorities or part of the LGBT community. Their Advanced Prostate Cancer program is a great resource for those seeking support groups, educational information, and research developments.
Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers
Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers is written by two talented and engaging bloggers — Dr. Mark Scholz, an oncologist who specializes in prostate cancer, and Ralph H. Blum, a cultural anthropologist and author. The duo takes turns posting each week, and they discuss medical issues as well as personal stories. The blog has been so successful that they’ve also published a book with the same clever name.
Living with Prostate Cancer
Todd Seales was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer in 2006. He was told he had a year to live. He’s still alive, and now he’s blogging at Living with Prostate Cancer. Seales, who says that prostate cancer has changed his life for the better, blogs about his medical experiences with cancer, and also about what it’s done for him personally. His perseverance is inspiring.
The ‘New’ Prostate Cancer Infolink
In the mid-1990s, the original Prostate Cancer Infolink was a prime source for news and information about treating and preventing prostate cancer.

You can also find worthwhile videos and content specifically curated for the newly diagnosed.
Our Walk with Stage IV Prostate Cancer
Marshall was diagnosed with late-stage prostate cancer in 2012. With his wife, Marilyn, he started this blog to chronicle his journey with the disease. Marshall passed away in 2015, but what remains is a story of tragedy and triumph that Marilyn maintains to this day. The long-running blog is a unique, inspiring glimpse into Marilyn’s life with, and now without, her husband.

Learn about prostate cancer from a man who treats it. Dr. Michael Glode is an oncologist and professor with the University of Colorado Hospital. Equal parts personal and medical, his blog serves up his take on the research and treatment options (including what considerations someone interested in using them should have), as well as roundups of major medical advances, and his reflections on the experiences of patients, past and present.
Prostate Cancer: Our Journey!
Daniel Sencier was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2010. His blog was started soon after to keep family and friends abreast of his progress.

The blog was and is a place for he and other cancer patients to discuss the effects of cancer that are sometimes ignored, including those that are emotional and psychological.
ZERO: The End of Prostate Cancer
It can seem impossible to catch every bit of news about prostate cancer. But ZERO’s prostate cancer news section is a great place to get all caught up.
