AIDP believes every patient should educate himself about prostate
cancer prevention, staging, treatments, and treatment side effects
whether he’s just been diagnosed or is struggling with advanced
disease. It is simply not possible to make a wise decision about
your own care if you’re not aware of the array of tools at
your disposal. During the course of your appointments with Dr. Myers,
he will, of course, discuss the options open to you given your type
of cancer, but most men find it useful to refer to supplemental materials
once they are back home either to reinforce what they learned at
our offices or to delve deeper into a subject.
To that end, through our non-profit Foundation
For Cancer Research & Education and for-profit Rivanna
Health Publication endeavors, we offer a variety of materials
such as brochures, books,
a journal, and transcripts of Dr. Myers video blog that
will help you learn all you can about this highly variable disease.
But you shouldn’t stop there: there is a plethora of resources available
to you both on and offline.
