St. George has a generous percentage of older men. Prostate problems including prostate cancer, enlarged prostate (benign prostate hypertrophy) and prostatitis are common. With prostate cancer there are so many decisions to make about screening tests, following early organ confined cancer, and future treatments The information is often overwhelming. The side effects of treatment can be significant. If cancer has spread there is more treatment and side effects. Prostatitis from infection can be very painful but responds well to antibiotics. A support group for those looking at future decisions, dealing with side effects, disruptive symptoms can be helpful and supportive.
