Information for Patients

Atturos’ aim is to help prostate cancer patients to make informed decisions about their health.

One in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. The majority of these cases are not life threatening, and with early detection can be treated effectively. There are a number of steps that need to be taken to determine the most appropriate treatment course for each patient. Not all prostate cancers are the same, and there are a number of factors that can influence the effectiveness of interventions. Before deciding on a course of treatment we encourage patients to talk to their doctor about any potential side effects and ask how the treatment will improve their health and quality of life.

Knowledge starts with information. We have provided a number of resources and support networks below to help patients get the right information and make informed decisions about their treatment choice.
