The Prostate Cancer Foundation published a fairly comprehensive yet concise e mail resource describing various facets of prostate cancer beginning with early screening and detection. The reader is urged to spend some time perusing this article. There is so much information here that I am simply linking the article at this point. The initial portion of the article deals with screening and biopsy.
A section entitled “For Patients- Recently Diagnosed? Read This Section First,” describes finding a doctor and treatment center, treatment options, side effects, clinical trials, financial resources, guides and even videos. Information by stage is also provided which includes information on screening, detection and diagnosis, active surveillance, recurrence and advanced disease. A section entitled “Understanding Prostate Cancer” describes risk factors, symptoms and prevention among others.
