A Prostate Cancer Discussion List

Since 1995, the mission of the PPML (a.k.a. the Prostate Problems Mailing List) has been to provide a forum for prostate cancer survivors, their families, and their supportive friends to exchange information about prostate cancer. Medical professionals sometimes also contribute to the discussions. We invite you to draw on the knowledge, experience, and empathetic support of our participants by subscribing to our discussion list and presenting any questions you may have. Questions and responses to questions are what has made the PPML the valuable resource that many of us have found it to be for many years.

In August 2018 the PPML was adopted as a service of Prostate Cancer International, Inc.

PPML ListServ software, hardware, and technical assistance are generously donated by the L-Soft Corporation.

The PPML is a ListServ mailing list. Subscribers send their e-mail messages to a central server that distributes e-mail copies to all other subscribers. It is also possible for subscribers to participate as though the PPML were a web-based bulletin board by setting their subscription preferences to not receive the distributed e-mails, and just read and send messages from the PPML archives webpages.

Before subscribing, please read our list rules and other subscriber information on this web page:

You should be aware that all messages to the list are archived on our archives web page and are available for retrieval by anyone who subscribes to the PPML. Archived messages will not be found by internet search engines.
