We continuously monitor the top websites for up-to-date prostate cancer information. We assess its quality and index it in our easy-to-search database. By searching our site, you can find the best information about a topic from all of the top websites.
High quality information
We rank your search results by quality score, so you know that the best quality information will be at the top of your list of hits.
From the best sources of information
We do not include advertisements, promotions or other ephemeral content in our search. We only include material that addresses the information needs of patients, families and health professionals in prostate cancer.
That means that, unlike conventional search engines, you know that your information is going to be substantial and relevant.
Relevant to your needs
We also look for information in response to specific queries from our end-users. This means that for many frequently-asked questions, you can go straight to the answers with one click.
- Let us know what you need information on, and we'll try to find it and include it in our newsletter.
Not everyone is happy with just knowing the basics! Because we include information that is aimed at both patients and at professionals, you can really explore a topic and work your way down to the depth you are comfortable with.
