New Survey Reveals the Effects of Prostate Cancer Go Beyond the Physical

Date Posted:

The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network today published the results of a Prostate Cancer Quality of Life Patient and Caregiver Survey.  This survey was conducted between June 21 and July 7, 2013, by Leger Marketing on behalf of Janssen Inc., and in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network (CCSN), a national network working together by taking action to promote the very best standard of care, support, follow up and quality of life for cancer patients and survivors, and PROCURE, a Quebec-based group that provides science and humanity with means to help prevent and cure prostate cancer.

The survey demonstrated that prostate cancer can impact quality of life, affecting patients' day-to-day life and overall well-being. According to a new national survey of men who have or have had prostate cancer, the condition's physical manifestations can also lead to psychological and social concerns, both of which are more pronounced for those in the later stages of the disease, when the tumour has metastasized or spread beyond the prostate.
