Abstract

Prostate cancer is now a chronic condition. Screening, diagnosis, and treatment pose specific psychosocial challenges for men diagnosed and surviving with prostate cancer. Depression, anxiety, and cognitive impairment lead to emotional distress and difficulty coping. Treatments for psychosocial distress are targeted at couples and individuals. Lifestyle modification may improve coping and quality-of-life indicators.
