Only you can say when you are ready to let people know you have prostate
cancer. As prostate cancer affects the male reproductive system, some men
feel shy talking about it.

However, talking to others about it can help you:

  • To take in the reality of what is happening for you
  • Think through problems or consider different viewpoints
  • Clarify the questions you have and the answers you need
  • Identify who is available to support you
  • Locate resources or information you may need.
