Sometimes even men can benefit from a female point of view on what appear, at first sight, to be exclusively male health issues.
Amy is the wife of a long-time prostate cancer patient who has agreed to offer her experience in whatever way she may be able to help. In particular, we believe she will be able to give suggestions and guidance to the wives, partners, mother, sisters, daughters, nieces, and female friends of prostate cancer patients as those patients go through the difficult processes of diagnosis and treatment for a disease that is emotionally unsettling for most men.
Please understand that Amy is not a physician. She is “just” a well educated laywoman with very personal experience of prostate cancer and its problems. She cannot provide you with medical advice. You should always talk to your doctor about your clinical condition and how it should be managed.
