Prostate Cancer Treatment Side-Effects – A Partners Perspective
Prostate cancer treatments may damage nerves and muscles near the prostate, bladder and bowel which can cause side-effects such as erection problems, urinary incontinence, a lowered sex drive and infertility.
Here we share an extract from the Navigate trial website where three women talk about their experiences of supporting their partners through treatment and the side effects.
If you are reading this article before June 2020 and have recently been diagnosed with early-stage, low-risk prostate cancer, please consider joining our research trial at www.navigateprostate.com.au to help navigate your treatment options.
We’d love to hear from you!
