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 Stage 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 health care provider about all your prostate cancer treatment choices so that you can be well informed. This booklet is designed to help you understand medical facts, and is not medical advice. It should not take the place of your health care provider’s advice and suggestions.

Many others have learned about treatment choices and coped with prostate cancer. You can too. Learn all you can so you can make your choice. The booklet was developed by the Michigan Cancer Consortium Prostate Action Committee in 2004 in response to a priority of the MCC. It was last revised in 2014 with the most up-to-date research. It continues to serve as a valuable source of information for prostate cancer survivors and their caregivers. Efforts for the booklet were supported with funding from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Cooperative Agreement 5U58DP000812).
