Welcome to the Prostate Cancer Research Institute's Blue Community discussion forum. Blue the color is for prostate cancer like pink is for breast cancer. Prostate cancer is a complex disease so we classify the different types of prostate cancer into categories we call Shades of Blue. There are six forums on this website, one for each shade and one for general topics. Finding your shade enables you to connect with people that have similar questions and experiences as you. This can help you find information relevant to your particular situation more easily. The first three shades, Sky, Teal and Azure represent the commonly described Low, Intermediate and High-Risk categories of men who have never had surgery or radiation (local therapy). The fourth and fifth Shades, Indigo and Royal, are for men with Relapsed and Advanced disease respectively. Know your shade and get involved in the discussion today!
