Introduction

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers among men. This form of cancer generally develops slowly over many years and when detected early the chances of successful treatment are high. However, the interventions used to treat prostate cancer can incur significant risks and side effects which lead to conditions that significantly affect well being and quality of life. As a physiotherapist, there are a variety of ways we can work with individuals who have or have had prostate cancer in order to address these related conditions.
