There are many simple steps to help identify prostate cancer in order to receive the best possible treatment and support. Make sure you know your body and can identify any changes to it.

Changes that you need to look out for include:-

  • Blood in the urine
  • Painful urination
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Difficulty to partake in sexual intercourse
  • Discomfort in the lower back
  • Hesitation to urinate

If you experience any of these problems go to your doctor immediately, no matter how small it is better to be safe than sorry and the doctor will be able to prescribe medication or investigate further problems. Your doctor can always help no matter what the problem. Don't be embarrassed your life is more important. No matter how small your problem seems to be your doctor will identify it and put your mind at rest.

Deciding on the best treatment is not always straight forward. The doctor will take into consideration the following:-

  • How long you've had the cancer
  • How much of the tumor was removed
  • The likelihood/amount the cancer has spread
  • Your age and general level of health





The next group meeting will be on Wednesday 17th July at 6.00pm.  In the Joiners Square Community Hall, Cornes St., Off Leek Rd., Hanley. ST1 3JA
