Knowledge Empowers

The brand new revised, updated and reformatted,October 2023 edition of Knowledge Empowers is here. This booklet, all about prostate cancer, 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.

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.

Healthy Living

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

Sections 1, 2 and 3 are 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 curious for more details, we put extra ‘technical stuff’ in 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.
