The Michigan Cancer Consortium (MCC) is dedicated to reducing the burden of cancer among Michigan residents. Experts with the MCC have also worked to ensure that current, research-based information is provided to Michigan men and their families as they make decisions about prostate cancer. These experts are the Prostate Cancer Action Committee. The committee includes urologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, nurses, social workers, American Cancer Society leaders and prostate cancer survivors.

Managing Your Prostate Cancer, Treatment and Survivorship

This website is a resource to help patients, families, and caregivers understand medical facts about prostate health by providing a variety of educational resources, booklets, and guides. It is not medical advice and should not take the place of your doctor's advice and suggestions.

Prostate Cancer Treatment - Making the Choice Booklet
If a biopsy has shown that you have early stage prostate cancer, the Making the Choice:  Deciding What to Do About Early State Prostate Cancer booklet would be helpful for you. It provides facts about your disease, your treatment choices, and the possible results of those choices. Talk with your doctor about all your prostate cancer treatment choices. Share this website with your doctor and loved ones, and talk to people you trust. This booklet is available in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Japanese.

Prostate Cancer Survivorship Guides - Help After Treatment
Men with prostate cancer sometimes have health concerns that continue after their treatment has ended. Each of the 15 guides available under the "Help After Treatment" tab are written to help men and their loved ones manage these concerns. Each guide describes a symptom, gives advice for managing it, and indicates when you should talk to your health care provider about it. These guides are available in English, Spanish, and Arabic.
