Prostate Cancer In America: What’s That?

“It won’t happen to me…” Learning you have prostate cancer can come as a shock, leaving many men unsure where to turn for information or support. Finding dependable information can be tricky, especially when it comes to prostate cancer. To learn more about the realities of prostate cancer, and what the patient journey is like, ProstateCancer.net is conducting our annual Prostate Cancer In American survey.

What’s the survey about?

The survey covers the “prostate cancer basics” like diagnosis and treatment experiences, but also digs into the nitty-gritty — the unexpected emotional toll and the seemingly “small” day-to-day challenges of prostate cancer.

All survey responses become property of Health Union, LLC, and are kept completely anonymous, confidential, and reported in total (your specific responses will not be reported individually).

Why should I take the survey?

Each person that takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of prostate cancer and helps others who may be struggling to feel less alone. Sharing your real-life experiences through the survey can reveal the similarities and differences between each person’s journey, and brings greater awareness to the cancer that affects 1 in 9 men.

What happens after I take the survey?

After the survey closes each year, the Editorial Team at ProstateCancer.net takes your responses and creates an infographic highlighting important findings to share with the community.

But that’s not all — throughout the year, we publish articles based on learnings from the survey. Through survey-driven content men can find reliable information about life with and after prostate cancer, and connect with those who have walked a similar path.

The third annual survey

The 3rd Annual Prostate Cancer In America survey is now open! Click HERE to take the survey.

One voice may seem like it won’t make a difference, but together your voices can change how others see life with and after prostate cancer.

    The biggest challenge is guys don’t want to talk about prostate cancer at any stage.

    We hold monthly education and support meetings where we have a medical professional discuss some aspect to prostate issues for 60 minutes. It is followed by followed another 60 min of open discussion on any topic regarding prostate cancer. It is not unusual to have men come in and say they have been diagnosed with prostate cancer as a result of a biopsy and can not understand why they feel OK.

    Just two weeks ago i am chatting with a group of men who are in a pre-op meeting and scheduled for surgery. After the meeting one approaches me and indicates he is not sure he want to do the surgery in a few days because he feels fine. Said he had no pain or any other issues but noted his Gleason was an 8.

    It is amazing to me how far some men will go to deny not only the presence of cancer but also are unsure of what actions they want to take to address the disease at any given stage. Dennis (prostate cancer.net) moderator
