Living With Cancer
While you can't change your genes, changes you make in your lifestyle – especially diet and exercise – can make a difference when it comes to prostate cancer prevention. Growing evidence shows changing your diet and behavior could lower your risk or deter recurrent disease.
Sexuality is a significant component of men’s health. Since the prostate is located in an area directly related to sexual function, its normal to feel apprehensive of the impact treatment may have on your sex life.
Incontinence is the inability to control urine flow when coughing, laughing, sneezing, or exercising. Removing the prostate through surgery or destroying it through radiation can disrupt the way the bladder holds urine by damaging the muscles that form the valves.
A major concern for men who are treated for prostate cancer is how the disease and treatment will affect their day to day life. It's important to know what to expect during and after treatment so you are prepared to make a decision on how you want to deal with the issue.
