If a biopsy has shown that you have early stage prostate cancer, we would like to help you learn all you can to make your treatment choice.
The Michigan Cancer Consortium has developed innovative patient-centered educational materials that support informed decision-making for men newly diagnosed with prostate cancer called “Making the Choice – Deciding what to do About Early Stage Prostate Cancer”.
Their booklet is designed to help you understand medical facts and to talk with your doctor. It is not medical advice and should not take the place of your doctor’s advice and suggestions.
It gives you the facts about your disease, your treatment choices and the possible results of those choices:
- Getting Started
- How Prostate Cancer is Different
- Understanding Your Prostate
- What Your Test Results Mean
- Planning Your Treatment
- Treatment Choices
- Beyond Treatment
- Words to Know and a Place to Write
