8 tell how they handle testing, anxiety of prostate cancer waiting
When a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer, he may choose prompt treatment or "active surveillance". Either way, he may face years of testing - and anxiety - to see if the cancer has progressed or returned. The Inquirer recently asked the Inspire/Us TOO Prostate Cancer Support Community for its members' insights on how they handle this experience. Here is how eight of the men responded.
The Inspire/Us TOO Prostate Cancer Support Community is one of the groups on Inspire, which builds and manages some 200 online support communities for about 700,000 patients and caregivers. Us TOO is an international nonprofit advocacy organization.
