Knowledge Empowers

A brand new revised edition, updated and reformatted booklet about prostate cancer will be available by August 2023.  This is aimed at men who have just been diagnosed and those further down the treatment trail.  It aims to explain aspects of prostate cancer from the patient’s point of view.

The current booklet is not up to date with NICE clinical recommendations and has therefore been removed from circulation.

Since the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer is changing quickly we try to update this every two years.  Some hospitals distribute this to their newly diagnosed patients.

A new 64 page publication from PCaSO, as a companion booklet to our Knowledge Empowers prostate cancer information booket, to emphasise and explain how a healthy lifestyle can be so important for our general health and may also reduce our risk of cancer.

The booklet is arranged so that the first three Sections (1, 2 and 3) are mostly suitable for any adult to read, or dip into, and particularly so for men having a precautionary PSA blood test.

For men affected by prostate cancer, or those who are curious for more details, we also put extra ‘technical stuff’ into Section 4, so if you are undiagnosed, skip that section if you wish!

Section 5 includes information on books and online sources for any further reading.

Note: This Healthy Living booklet was first released as a printed version on 8th October 2022 at the PSA testing event held in Burgess Hill, East Sussex. This website version contains some clickable links, but not all the links are yet fully working.
