National Cancer Survivors’ Day is the first Sunday in June, when we celebrate people living with a history of cancer. It’s a day to reflect on what survivors bring to our community and to recognize the challenges they face during and after treatment.
More than 3.5 million men in the U.S. are living with a history of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer treatment, while effective, can have side effects. Many of these can be managed.

Get tips on starting the discussion from Dr. Alicia Morgans, Medical Director of the Survivorship Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
