Help Line is 800-641-PCRI or 310-743-2110
A great deal of treatment information and free newsletter. The Prostate Cancer Research Institute maintains a knowledgeable help line staff, all of whom have received training from the PCRI Co-founders and prostate cancer oncologists, Drs. Stephen Strum and Mark Scholz. Moreover, this experienced staff can draw upon the expertise of PCRI’s Medical Advisory Board for medical information. The helpline staff's purpose is to help the patient understand his diagnosis and his treatment options. This is done using materials from the PCRI archives and by searching for appropriate peer-reviewed medical literature. The PCRI Helpline Facilitators do not provide medical advice. Instead, their goal is to help the patient gain knowledge to promote a better communication with his medical providers in the hopes of obtaining the best possible outcomes.
