Prostate Cancer Survivorship Guides – Help After Treatment

Men with prostate cancer sometimes have troubling health related concerns that continue after treatment has ended.

The Michigan Cancer Consortium Prostate Action Committee, a team of prostate cancer content experts, consisting of survivors, nurses and physicians created these guides for managing health related concerns after prostate cancer treatment. Each of the 15 guides describe a health related concern, provide practical tips for managing it, and indicate when further professional help is needed. Many of the guides also list websites that men and their loved ones can visit to learn more about additional sources of support and resources. (Scroll down to see the full list of guides)

The guides were designed in September 2009, and updated in September 2016. They continue to serve as a valuable source of information for prostate cancer survivors and their caregivers.

This information was developed under guidance of the Michigan Cancer Consortium Prostate Cancer Action Committee. Their efforts were supported in part by funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Cooperative Agreement 5NU58DP003921. The content of these publications do not necessarily represent the official view of the CDC.

These guides contain general information and are not meant to replace consultation with your health care provider.
