    • If there is no magic PSA cutoff point, how can my cancer be diagnosed?
    • If I have cancer, how do I know where I stand (the 2007 Partin Tables), and what are my treatment options?
    • What is the most up-to-date information on surgery and radiation therapy?
    • Have there been any breakthrough treatments in the management of advanced disease?
