If you’ve recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and are living in Ayrshire, our free course has been designed for you.

  • hear from experts about staying well and managing your side effects
  • meet others and pick up tips to reduce the impact on your life

The first course will run from Wednesday 6th Sept each week at 2pm for 6 weeks. Please contact Ayrshire Cancer Support to register.

What does the course cover?

We look at a range of topics including the practicalities of having prostate cancer and the side effects of treatment.  Whether you are experiencing fatigue, anxiety, urinary or erectile problems we’ll have experts on hand to talk through how to minimise your side effects.

The course will also cover what you can do to live well, the potential impact on your finances and relationships along with many other topics! You’ll meet others in a similar situation and hear from the experts. You’ll meet at Ayrshire Cancer Support, 5 Dundonald Road, Kilmarnock KA1 1EQ.
