The Psychological Impact Of Prostate Cancer

Patients diagnosed with prostate cancer often struggle with their diagnosis

It would not be hard to guess the psychological impact on patients the moment a doctor tells them they have cancer.

Just hearing that word probably leaves most patients stunned and, in the moments that follow, perhaps only half-listening to whatever else the doctor has to say.

To some, cancer equals death. Cancer may or may not be life ending, but it is almost certainly life changing.

The diagnosis may intrude often on patients' thoughts and reshape their vision about the trajectory of their lives.

Some may decide to take that cruise around the world they have been dreaming about sooner rather than later.

Rare would be the patient who is not at least a little concerned or frightened about the odyssey of tests and treatment they face.

As a result of the diagnosis, some patients may experience harmful physiological effects and contemplate suicide. Men with prostate cancer (PCa) are not immune.
