    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Do you know of an experimental prostate treatment involving blood mixing with chemicals then putting the blood back in the body? What is it called? What are the side effects? Is it a last ditch effort type of treatment?

    Yes, I believe you are describing Provenge or Sipulceul-T. This is for men with end stage prostate cancer (hormone refractory) who have metastatic disease.

    It is offered in most large academic centers and also in many larger urology groups. Ask your urologist for more information.
