Stories of Others

Welcome Message From Lyle, President of the IPCSG

Welcome to our website.  You will find lots of helpful information, and most of all, support from men who are battling the same disease you are. 

Dr. T. Mike Hsieh: Sexual Function Rehabilitation

Dr. Hsieh (pronounced “shay”) has been with UCSD for 7 years. The principles of cancer treatment are safety, cancer control and minimizing side effects. With prostate cancer, cancer control is generally approached through surgery, radiation, or hormones (i.e.,ADT). Beyond control, preserving urinary continence and sexual function are principal goals, and are referred to by urologists as the “Trifecta.” Quality of life has become very important in patients’ choices of treatments.


Prostate Cancer Foundation  (PCF), a non-profit research organization located in Santa Monica, CA. The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) is the world’s leading philanthropic organization dedicated to funding life-saving cancer research, funding nearly $800 million in research in the last 25 years.

As part of PCF’s educational outreach effort, we have recently developed the Prostate Cancer Patient Guide to connect patients, loved ones and care providers with critical updates, actionable information, and the latest developments from the treatment pipeline, and we would like to offer this guide as a free patient resource.

The Prostate Cancer Patient Guide, compiled with the contributions of top-tier doctors and researchers in prostate cancer, is a must-have resource for prostate cancer patients. It focuses all of the information available about contemporary prostate cancer research, treatment, and lifestyle factors into one consolidated document.
