A prostate cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and scary. Use these questions as a guide for conversations with your doctor and your healthcare team. Finding a doctor that you trust and who will work to understand your needs, values, and goals for treatment is important. A shared decision-making approach will help you feel more included and empowered during this process and as you make treatment decisions. Take a family member or friend to your appointments. That person can take notes, remind you to ask questions, and help you understand the answers. Remember, you are not alone.
