Thanks to early detection and treatment, most people with prostate cancer survive, and many may live for decades, according to Matthew Tollefson, M.D., a Mayo Clinic urologist. But many who survive prostate cancer may have concerns about life post-cancer. Side effects of treatment might include problems with urinary control and sexual function.

Side effects can be managed, however, and it’s important to bring up issues you may be experiencing with your health care provider.

In this Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Tollefson talks about life after prostate cancer, including what to expect in the short-term and long-term and how to build a support network.
