Facts on Prostate Cancer
According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 3 people will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer among men, and the survival rate is dependent on the stage and cancer treatment.
Thanks to advancements in technology, we are much more knowledgeable about prostate cancer and can identify it in its early stages. As a result, there are less invasive treatment options for patients, and survival rates have increased.

Facing the Effects of Prostate Cancer
Trying to process the news and learn about your diagnosis simultaneously can be overwhelming. You should not navigate this experience alone, as terminologies like PSAS and androgens become a part of your new normal.
Cancer support communities like CanCare are an excellent resource for people facing prostate cancer who need an extra shoulder to lean on. With in-person prostate cancer support groups, online prostate cancer support groups, and survivorship programs and centers available, survivors and those going through prostate cancer have access to people who know what it is like to be in their shoes.
