  • Post-Treatment Concerns for Prostate Cancer Survivor

    "Most men do very well after surgery or radiation treatment for prostate cancer."
    — Philip Kantoff, MD  

    Prostate Cancer Survivorship

    Some prostate cancer survivors face certain side effects of treatment, including incontinence, hormonal imbalance, and erectile dysfunction. Fortunately, there are strategies for addressing these challenges.

    What You Can Do

     
    • Get the help you need. Your doctor can work with you to resolve issues such as erectile dysfunction, incontinence, or hormonal imbalances.
    • Consider a supplement. Your doctor may recommend taking supplements for calcium and vitamin D, which can help your body deal with certain hormone imbalances that may result from prostate cancer treatment.
    • Exercise regularly. The American Cancer Society recommends that cancer survivors get around 30 to 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise at least five days each week.
    • Eat a healthy diet. Try to include a variety of healthful foods in your meals, with an emphasis on foods from plant sources.
