Support groups have been started all around the world to help men and their loved ones cope with prostate cancer and its effects. Thousands of men and their families in the United States alone make use of these groups.
It's important to remember that these groups exist for men at any point. From diagnosis to treatment to follow-up years down the road, there are other men who have gone through the same circumstances and are willing to help.
It's also important to remember that most prostate cancer support groups are designed to help anyone who is dealing with prostate cancer - not just the man with the disease. This means that spouses, children, siblings, and anyone else affected by this disease can gain support when they need it.
