1 in 8 men in the UK will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. With each year that goes by, new treatments and more accurate detection mean that more and more men are prostate cancer survivors.
The term Cancer Survivorship describes living beyond cancer which, in some cases, will involve managing long term side effects from treatment. For men who have been treated for prostate cancer, these side effects are frequently urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction.
New surgical techniques allow surgeons to operate on an increasing number of patients, but whilst removing the cancer, other structures within the body can be damaged.
Wednesday 10 July
The Marylebone Hotel, London
Join us for an evening of learning with talks from the UK’s leading specialists in urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction and success stories from other prostate cancer survivors who have taken control of their long-term recovery.
In the immediate post-operative period, men often experience incontinence (leaking of urine) which usually tapers off within several weeks or months. For some men however, the incontinence persists beyond the recovery period and becomes a long term side effect of their treatment.
The same is true for erectile dysfunction (ED). ED is a widely-reported complication following prostate cancer surgery and can have a lasting impact on men and their partners.
There are a number of surgical and non-surgical interventions which can offer symptomatic relief from urinary incontinence and ED.
At our Prostate Survivorship Patient Seminar you will hear how you can take control of your long-term recovery from two of the UK’s leading specialists in urinary incontinence (Mr Jeremy Ockrim, left) and ED (Professor David Ralph, right).
