Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Prostate Cancer Patient
Resources and Support Organizations

Roughly the same number of American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer (1 in 9) as women will be diagnosed with breast cancer (1 in 8) every year. However, for a variety of reasons, prostate cancer awareness does not employ the same level of awareness breast cancer does. In efforts to raise awareness around prostate cancer, we hope you will find useful, and more importantly share, our favorite prostate cancer patient resources 2019 edition.

It is of paramount importance for men to take an active role in their own treatment course to achieve the optimum quality of life post-treatment.

Prostate cancer is highly treatable and there are multiple organizations whose mission is to help educate as well as provide support to men and their families dealing with a prostate cancer diagnosis. The list of resources available is extensive. Here are just a few of Isoray’s recommended patient advocacy groups and organizations.

The Prostate Cancer Free Foundation

The Prostate Cancer Free Foundation works to help people interested in, and affected by prostate cancer through education and research. The Foundation is supported by the members of the Prostate Cancer Results Study Group. The Prostate Cancer Results Study Group evaluates and compares the effectiveness and long term results of various prostate cancer treatments.

Our colleague and Cesium-131 user for prostate brachytherapy Dr. Alex Hsi is a Prostate Cancer Free Foundation board member.

They find studies, analyze outcomes, and present the data in a clear, digestible way so that men better understand and can make informed decisions regarding their treatment. The graph is updated regularly and provided to a large network of patients and physicians around the world.
