You are not alone. Almost two hundred thousand men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the United States, every year, but only 31,000 men die from prostate cancer each year. Rarely does any man die within the first few years of his diagnosis, no matter what, if any, treatment, he has chosen. You now have thousands of new brothers. We’ve all been biopsied. We’ve all heard some doctor say, “You have prostate cancer.” And we’ve all gotten a little or more confused about the variety of treatments available to us. Truth is, around prostate cancer, you are a mirror of each of us.
Malecare has been active since 1997. We’re here for you. Every one of us heard our diagnosis and spent our first days and weeks fretting about it. Hearing a cancer diagnosis changes your life. If it didn’t make you feel that way, you would not be human. And being human is good.
Being human, and, being a man, means taking charge…finding out as much about your disease as you can comfortably digest.
If you’ve been recently diagnosed, been affected by a loved one’s diagnosis, or need more information to help you understand prostate cancer, use this website as your main resource, as often as you need. Here you’ll find the latest on diagnosis and treatment, risk factors and screening, and a host of other topics—including complementary therapies, quality medical care, and life after treatment. You’ll find hints and lists of questions that other men and their families have written, from their own experiences. You’ll also find lots pf the usual educational materials, interactive tools, and support groups.
And, feel encouraged to contact us with any questions. There
