    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.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I have had a radical prosectomy in 2004 and have been cancer free. However, my last exam showed that the PSA had increased for .03 to .09 in one year. So far there is no evidence to a cacerous growth. Basically the reasons are unknown.
    I have been taking rather large doses os Folic Acid in my multivitamin. Prevention magazine ran a study that showed high doses of Folic acid can cause increased prostate cancer growth in men who have not had sugery. Nedless to say, I have stopped taking my Multivitamin untill further notice.
