No matter where you are in your cancer care — active surveillance, currently undergoing treatment or well into survivorship, Roswell Park has a broad range of services and support that can help you cope with the physical, emotional, practical and day-to-day concerns related to your illness, treatment and lifelong wellness.
Roswell Park’s Support Services are available to all our patients, but some of the following may be particularly helpful to those with prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer awareness and education group
This group is especially for prostate cancer patients and their families. Each meeting features an expert discussing the latest treatment advances, diet, exercise, dealing with sexual side effects, integrative medicine options, ways to manage symptoms and other topics. The group meets four times a year, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Roswell Park. For more information, call 716-845-3159 or check our online calendar.
Sexual Health Clinic
This clinic helps patients who experience erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence, hormone problems and other issues that can result from prostate cancer or its treatment.
This program focuses on your ongoing lifelong wellness and quality of life. Our wide range of services are designed to help you manage the emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of life after cancer.
Supportive & Palliative Care
This program provides essential support and symptom management to patients facing difficult symptoms such as pain, nausea, poor sleep, or anxiety related to cancer and its treatment, or who may be feeling overwhelmed or don't have the support they need to get through their treatment. Our team will take the time to listen to you, assess your symptoms and provide a way forward to relieve pain and other symptoms, improve quality of life and ease emotional distress and anxiety.
