Diagnosed with prostate cancer?
Understanding your options is vital.
This checklist can help with some of the most important
considerations when deciding what to do after a diagnosis.
- Always get a second opinion (ask your primary care doctor for a referral).
- Not every treatment is right for every patient and, sometimes, no treatment at all is the right decision.
- Your treatment should be at an accredited center (find a list at www.facs.org/cancer, then click on “CoC Hospital Locator”)
