"I'm embarrassed by my problem"

Because we’re not answering your questions face-to-face, you may find it easier to talk about it over the phone or online. That's what we're here for. 

 



"What should I ask at my next doctor's appointment?"

We can help you prioritise the ‘what-to-ask questions’ so you leave your appointment with the information you need.

 



"I'm struggling with side effects"

We can talk with you about how you're feeling and provide practical tips, help and support.

"I feel lost, scared or low"

Prostate cancer can be overwhelming, and it may be useful to get things out. We're here to listen and help make sense of your situation.

 



"I'm struggling to support a loved one"

Supporting someone with cancer can be difficult. It’s understandable if you feel frustrated, frightened or unsure at times. You can talk to us about it.

 



"I've been told my cancer isn't curable. What can I expect?"

We can give emotional support and practical information about side effects of treatment or symptoms of your cancer, and the options available to you.

Fatigue support

Fatigue is very common in men with prostate cancer. Around three in four men with prostate cancer (74 per cent) will have fatigue at some point. There are things you can do to help manage your fatigue and there’s a lot of support available.

The nurses are so supportive and have helped me no end. I don't know what I'd have done without you. Being able to speak to somebody one on one who really knows their stuff is invaluable.
