Coronavirus and prostate cancer

In taking forward our work to inform, support and advance on prostate issues, Prostate Scotland has compiled information on COVID-19 and prostate cancer to help provide information and support for men with prostate cancer and their families about this new disease.
This page – ‘COVID-19, prostate cancer and some FAQ’s‘ gives information to help answer many of the key questions that we have been asked about it. This information is supplemented by a series of ‘Info Guidance pages’ that give more detailed information on each topic, which are as follows:

  • Active Surveillance
  • Attending your GP practice, hospital, and getting prescriptions
  • Chemotherapy
  • Clinical Trials
  • COVID-19 and prostate cancer general information
  • Hormone Therapy
  • Making decisions about prostate cancer treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Radiotherapy: EBRT, SBRT, brachytherapy, and Radium 223
  • Prostatectomy: RARP and LRP

These ‘Info Guidance’ pages can be found by following the links in each section of this page, or by opening the documents directly from the resources section of this website: COVID-19 and prostate cancer  We suggest that before you go to the more detailed information that you read the frequently asked questions (FAQs) on this page.

We hope and wish that you all stay healthy and well.

Thank you for your support.
