Finding Out

It is frightening to be told you have cancer. In the case of prostate cancer, it is often worse because there is so little information regarding the location and function of the prostate gland, and treatment of prostate cancer.

The specialist staff at the hospital will discuss your condition with you, and will answer any questions, but you may not know what questions to ask. There are many websites which deal with prostate cancer, and which will give you the background, symptoms and types of treatment, and some are listed here.

The information from these websites will help you to understand the symptoms and the options for treatment, and give some ideas of the questions you may wish to ask.
