The Importance of Preparing

Prostate cancer is a serious disease, and everyone’s experience is different. That’s why it’s important to educate yourself about what may happen next so you can be prepared in case your prostate cancer progresses.

Progression means the cancer is getting worse or spreading. Progression can happen even if you are taking treatment to lower your testosterone levels. That’s why it’s important to work with your doctor to monitor your prostate cancer.
