Prostate Cancer Support Group

Chicago - 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Prostate cancer treatment may result in side effects, such as sexual health issues or urination problems. Matthias Hofer, MD, PhD will discuss advanced treatment options for erectile dysfunction and options for men who experience persistent urine leakage when coughing, sneezing or during physical activities.

The Prostate Cancer Support Group offers opportunities to share personal support and connect with others affected by prostate cancer and learn about treatment options and the potential impact of side effects on a man and his spouse or partner, and his overall quality of life. Facilitated by the Us TOO Prostate Cancer Education & Support Network, these interactive groups facilitate conversations to exchange information among group members assembled with the common goal of empowering each other with the knowledge that comes from experience.

We welcome all people affected by prostate cancer, including patients, caregivers, spouses and partners. You don't have to receive care at Northwestern Medicine to attend.
