Talking with your doctor

One of the most important ways to get the support you need is by having open conversations with your doctor and care team.

Talking with a doctor about prostate cancer can be tough for you and/or your caregiver. Be bold. You can never ask too many questions when it comes to your health. Do it for yourself, the people you care about, and for the people who care about you.
