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.
Prostate Cancer Patient Guide
PCF’s Prostate Cancer Patient Guide is compiled with the contributions of top-tier doctors and researchers in prostate cancer, and is a must-have resource for patients and families. It focuses all of the information available about contemporary prostate cancer research, treatment, and lifestyle factors into one consolidated document.
It is for any man who has been newly diagnosed, who is in treatment, or is concerned about a rising PSA. Beyond that, it’s for any loved one or caregiver who wants to cut through the information noise and get directly to need-to-know information for prostate cancer patient navigation. Lastly, as we are beginning to recognize the genetic underpinnings of cancer, this guide is for any family member who might want to understand how their shared genes affect their own short- and long-term risk factors—and whether they should be screened as well.
