Part 1. Current post.
Part 2. [Yananow Place Name Table]
This is Part 1 of a two part series on Yananow tables.
The Yananow site has a collection of hundreds of prostate cancer patient histories written by the patients themselves. They are categorized in tables on the site. These tables show the data sorted by Age, PSA, Gleason Score and Year Diagnosed. Also on the same page, Yananow has a list categorized by treatment with those having been treated 5, 10 and 15 years ago marked with bronze, silver and gold and particularly interesting histories marked with a yellow star.
Another way to locate interesting histories on Yananow that is completely objective is based on the idea that the more links and the longer the description a case has the more useful. To implement this we have created a table below with one row per Yananow case history sorted in descending order of the number of links in the writeup. Within case histories having the same number of links, we have sorted it by length of description in lines. The abbreviated name of each person is given as a link back to their Yananow self reported case history. The geographic location of each history is also given in case you wish to focus on ones nearer to you.
The links that the participants found sufficiently useful to include in their writeups are shown right in the table so by clicking on them you can rapidly visit the totality of links that the 60+ patients who provided links mentioned. Also you may wish to read at least the case histories with the most links and also longer case histories even if they have fewer links and the organization of the table facilitates identifying those.
Of course, these automated metrics (number of links, number of lines) cannot be more than suggestive of usefulness but hopefully, in conjunction with the information on the Yananow site itself will be a helpful guide.
(By the way, many written and video case histories and case history sites like Yananow are listed in our [Case Histories] post.)
