From a partner’s perspective: living with prostate cancer
In this issue, we explore the concerns and needs of partners of survivors. Three overarching themes are discussed: 1) coping with life in the face of cancer, 2) encountering difficult emotions related to a partner’s illness, and 3) learning to live with relationship changes.
We look at these at various stages of the prostate cancer “journey”: diagnosis and treatment, and what that experience is like for couples, what they find as helpful, harmful, and surprising throughout the experience, what couples and families need through and following treatment, and how men and women think and respond differently to intimacy and relationship challenges that occur as a result of prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment.
