|www.cystitispatientsurvey.com is a survey of patients regarding the main treatments for cystitis and whether the patient feels each test and treatment left him or her feeling better, worse, or had no effect. We also ask what the patient has found to be effective in dealing with "frequency and urgency" and pelvic pain. Many men have cystitis, of course, and one doctor believes that 10% of prostatitis patients may actually have cystitis. We have many more women responders to the survey than men at present and would really appreciate it if those of you who have cystitis would participate.

|Don Cooley writes: "My web site at http://www.cooleyville.com/cancer
is a non-commercial site about prostate cancer. It is a virtual
encyclopedia of information covering all aspects of prostate
cancer. It is over 450,000 words and 300 web pages which is
the equivalent of three normal books. Besides it is kept current
almost daily and therefore has all the latest information. It
is completely non-commercial and was developed by me after I
was diagnosed with prostate cancer and I still maintain it without
help - either money or development. It is the largest prostate
cancer site on the web developed and owned by an individual
and covers pre and post diagnosis information, treatments and
studies - and much more."
