Group 2 Prostate Cancer

Last reply: 3 months ago

I've just found out yesterday that I have group 2 Prostate Cancer. I'm 46 years old.
I had no major symptoms other than high PSA. It seems I've found it early and the team seem very confident that it can be treated and curable.
I lost my wife aged only 29, 11 years ago to Kidney cancer so this is also playing on my mind. Today I start my new journey. I will try and stay as positive as I can.

Dear AJ

I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis and also to hear that your wife died so young from cancer. How hard this must be for you. If you would like to phone our support line and speak to a cancer nurse we can talk about all that you are going through and if you would like to speak to one of the men in our peer to peer group who had prostate cancer we can arrange this for you. We can also direct you to counselling to help you deal with the shock.

As you say you are starting a new journey and it is good that your team are very confident regarding your prognosis which gives you every reason to stay positive. I hope that you will get the support you deserve on this journey.

Kind regards

Cancer Nurse
