Informed Decision-making: Prostate Cancer

About 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. The availability of several treatment options for prostate cancer creates a situation where patients may need to come to a shared decision with their healthcare team regarding their care. Effective shared decision-making requires that the patient and his doctor be informed in order to make the best choices. This series helps patients to think about their care, discuss their case with their own doctors and others, and join in the process of making the best decisions.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men (after skin cancer), but it can often be treated successfully. If you have prostate cancer or are close to someone who does, knowing what to expect can help you cope. Find out all about prostate cancer, including risk factors, symptoms, how it is found, and how it is treated from leading experts at UCSF.
