PCF publishes a series of helpful guides as part of our commitment to connect men and their loved ones to the latest prostate cancer research information. You can order or download these guides here.
New! Patient Guide to Localized Prostate Cancer
PCF aims to connect patients with the information that is most useful to them, wherever they are on their prostate cancer journey. Therefore, in 2023, we are creating two separate patient guides. If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and your doctor has told you that your cancer is early stage, still in the prostate, localized, curable with treatment, or low grade, this guide is for you. The guide includes information about treatment options, possible side effects and their management, healthy living tips, and family cancer risk.
Recurrent and Metastatic Prostate Cancer Patient Guide
PCF’s new Patient Guide to Recurrent and Metastatic Prostate Cancer is in development. If you have been newly diagnosed with prostate cancer that is advanced or metastatic, you have many treatment options. Please continue to consult the current version of the Prostate Cancer Patient Guide to learn more. If you have previously been treated for prostate cancer and your PSA is rising, or your doctor suspects that your cancer may have recurred, please see this guide.

Additional Facts for Black Men and Their Families provides special facts and guidance regarding Black men and prostate cancer. 1 in 6 Black men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime (vs. 1 in 8 Caucasian men). Black men are also more than twice as likely to die from the disease. The guide includes personal thoughts from Charlie Wilson, Brian Custer, and Snoop Dogg. (8 pages)
Whether you are a cancer survivor or someone who just wants to prevent any number of chronic diseases, PCF’s The Science of Living Well, Beyond Cancer, is an invaluable resource.
One in 3 people will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetimes. Everyone knows someone with cancer, but we all wish we didn’t. An aging population, combined with poor lifestyle choices, has resulted in an overall rise in chronic disease, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, and depression. The good news is that 42% of cancer is thought to be preventable. You can become a participant in your own health outcomes with a few of the simple lifestyle suggestions in this guide.
Maintaining Health During Androgen Deprivation Therapy
Long-term ADT is a cornerstone of prostate cancer treatment. There is a desperate need to better understand the physical and cognitive side effects of this treatment.
