And now for an update from Howard Wolinsky


Prostate Cancer International is very proud to have been part (through PCPC3) of helping to have a patient participate in the very first session of the recent Genitourinary Cancers Symposium in Orlando, Florida (which was all about active surveillance and its application). That patient was Howard Wolinsky, who has now been on active surveillance for a little over 6 years.

Howard has now written up his experience on the MedPage Today web site, where he has been writing about his experience on a regular basis. So, rather than give you our take on what happened, we refer you directly to Howard’s own perspective in

Despite the serious hiccup that we’ll let Howard tell you about himself, Prostate Cancer International still wishes to thank the American Society for Clinical Oncology and the planning committee for the Genitourinary Cancers Symposium for entertaining the inclusion of a patient as a member of a session at the meeting. We believe that regular inclusion of real-life patient experience into what can often become very academic and theoretical discussion is an important component of the continuing education of both the clinical and the research community.

  1. WordPress suddenly does not recognize me. When I click on the link and try to offer credentials it is rejected. Then when I try a recovery, I do not have the proper ID. Very frustrated. Would like to read this article.

  2. Dear Bob:

    I don’t think your problem has anything to do with WordPress. Have you registered with MedPageToday? It’s free, but you do have to register. That’s the site that Howard’s article is on.

  3. I’m having the same problem as Bob. The article link is requesting a WordPress username & password. Something is wrong with this link.

  4. Dear David: The link has been fixed.
