Prostate Cancer

Follow Up and Support

When a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer, it means more than having a physical condition - it is an emotional experience, too. Men with prostate cancer and their families are offered the entire range of services at Allegheny General Hospital, an academic medical center.

Services include:

  • Psychologic and/or psychiatric counseling to help handle the emotions encountered during and after the course of treatment.
  • Social worker support to help patients locate services, programs and other resources in their communities, such as support groups and financial-assistance programs.
  • Man-to-Man support program, in partnership with the American Cancer Society; the Man-to-Man program provides trained volunteer counselors, who are themselves prostate cancer survivors, to discuss patient concerns and problems.

The Allegheny Prostate Center staff also has available an array of educational materials that can help answer patient questions. The goal of the Allegheny Prostate Center team is to work with patients and their families to get the best results possible in the treatment of prostate cancer.
