Prostate Cancer: Life Beyond A Diagnosis
In recent years the number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer has shown a significant increase, the reasons for which are not all that clear. One possible explanation is the increasing awareness of prostate cancer among Kiwi men, and as a Foundation we will take some credit for this with our increasing effectiveness in this area.
While the number of diagnoses increases, the death rate is decreasing, meaning more men are surviving their encounter with the disease, and for many this means living with the outcomes of treatments and ongoing medications. This poses issues for many men – it’s all about survivorship and maintaining a good quality of life.
This year’s conference in Christchurch will address this ‘survivorship’ and our keynote speakers will provide some real solutions to the questions men, and their families have, about making the most of life following a prostate cancer diagnosis.
Head to the Conference 2020 page for further details and registration information.
