Prostate Cancer Advice & Help From PCF
Thank you to our friends at the Prostate Cancer Foundation, they have provided amazing information & resources for My Cancer Family.
Unfortunately, Prostate Cancer will impact 1 in 8 men in their lifetime so early detection and screenings are important for every man.
PCF has a simple, 3 question quiz to help men determine when is the best time to start getting screened. (Women can take it for them, too.)
If there is a family history of prostate cancer, PCF recommends starting get screened as early as age 40.
Once diagnosed, PCF has a variety of resources we recommend to patients including a patient guide.
PCF also has various support groups. Support groups are great for patients AND their caregivers.
According to PCF, their Facebook Support Groups are extremely valuable. There are a diverse number of groups available.
