Support
Groups
Most support/networking groups in BC meet monthly at a set location and time. The meetings are informal and provide a forum for personal discussion with men who currently have, or have already recovered from prostate cancer.

We invite specialists whose fields relate to prostate cancer to give talks. We also prove question-and-answer and sharing periods. In addition, we maintain a large lending library of up-to-date books and video tapes. Some support group topics are: incontinence, stages of prostate cancer, sexuality and sexual potency, new research findings, nutrition, pain and symptom management, the function of the prostate gland, and new research and treatment options.

Meetings are free and everyone is welcome. To see what is going on in a particular support group, go to www.prostatecancerbcsupportgroups.ca.
