Advanced prostate cancer
If you are concerned about advanced prostate cancer, there are many resources that you can use.
Firstly, medical jargon can be confusing, so we suggest you visit Advanced Prostate Cancer Xplained, and download the app for your Apple or Android device, or view it online. This app takes away that confusion through storytelling. Advanced Prostate Cancer Xplained takes us on one man’s journey with Advanced Prostate Cancer in an engaging, informative and entertaining story.
Secondly, the Australian Advanced Prostate Cancer Support Group is for you if your prostate cancer is out of the prostate:
- locally advanced, or
- metastatic to lymph nodes, or
- metastatic to other parts, or
- recurring – rising PSA after primary treatment
If you have very high risk disease (e.g. high Gleason score) and want to become more informed you will also gain benefits from this support group. The group provides a large amount of information on the website, but a key service for men with advanced prostate cancer is to let them talk to other men in a similar situation. In addition to monthly phone-in meetings, there is an online forum where you can ask any question and get thoughtful and knowledgeable answers.
