Understanding prostate cancer

Provided By:

(NC)-This year, 24,700 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Getting quality information about the disease is key, and information tailored to your own case is even better. The Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada has developed several tools to help men and their families assess their risk, understand diagnosis and prognosis, and make treatment decisions.

"Prostate cancer is the number one cancer threat to men," said Greg Sarney of the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada. "Despite this, many men are unaware of their risk or uncomfortable about reporting symptoms to their doctor. Our goal is to arm these men with the information they need to beat this disease. With early detection and treatment, prostate cancer is curable in 95 per cent of cases."

Online tools available

Prostate Cancer Assessment Tools (or PCATs) are a collection of online tools that address the specific, individual needs of a man dealing with prostate cancer throughout all stages of the disease. After answering a series of questions, a man can determine the likelihood of having prostate cancer, or, if already diagnosed, use personal test results to better understand his prognosis and treatment options. PCATs are based on information from thousands of real life cancer cases and are available at www.prostatecancer.ca.

Patient Information Guide

The Foundation also provides a unique patient guide for men diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer. "Patients' Questions, Doctors' Answers: a patient-focused evidence-based guide to the issues" is an index of 79 commonly asked questions and answers created by the Division of Cancer Care and Epidemiology, Queen's University Cancer Research Institute. The content is based on extensive research that included both discussions and surveys of patients, their family members, urologists, radiation oncologists, cancer centre nurses and radiation therapists. Through the Foundation, the guide has been made available to urologists across Canada to share with their patients.
