Managing Prostate Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. This video will help you understand how to manage it. Prostate cancer is a type of cancer that forms in a man's prostate gland. Most prostate cancer is slow growing and may not cause any symptoms or problems. However, it's very important to have a follow up care plan. This includes taking prescribed medications as directed by your doctor. Take note of any side effects and tell your doctor. Ask your doctor what to do if you missed a dose. If you can't afford your medication, ask your doctor about other options to get your medications. Talk to your doctor before taking over-the-counter supplements or herbal medicines. Go to all appointments for your doctor's visits and lab tests. Keeping these appointments allows your doctor to check your condition and see if you need further treatment. If you have had prostate surgery or radiation therapy follow any instructions you were given. You may need to make some of the following healthy lifestyle changes: don't smoke and limit how much alcohol you drink. Both of these activities may increase your cancer risk. Cut down on salt and foods high in fat, such as fast food. Eat a healthy diet with more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. A healthy diet may reduce the risk of the cancer coming back. Become physically active. Daily exercise and activities can make you feel better. Keep in mind that some cancer treatments can make you feel very tired. Ask your doctor what you can do to help you feel less tired. Knowing you have cancer can be overwhelming. You may have worries about things like your condition and how it affects your family, treatments and hospital stays, medical bills, and your job. Fortunately, there are ways to cope with this. Remember that your doctor and health care team are there to answer any questions you have. The following sources of support can help you cope with your concerns: social workers, church leaders, counselors, and support groups. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions about your treatment plan, medications or lifestyle changes to help you manage prostate cancer.
