Prostate cancer patients not happy with health providers

Reports say that the health providers do not treat patients with prostate cancer with dignity and respect and they are not provided with correct diagnosis and treatment options.// The survey was conducted in more than 1,000 men with prostate cancer and the study results showed that more than 22% felt they were given their diagnosis insensitively.

The Prostate Cancer Charity were not happy with the study results as they found that 38% of men were not given access to a specialist nurse to discuss their diagnosis, while 43% were not provided with any written information about the disease, treatments and side-effects. More results from the study show that 24% of men were not happy with the way the doctors informed them about their cancer diagnosis and they felt they should have informed about their cancer diagnosis when they had a supporting person with them, they feel that the counseling for men with prostate cancer was not very encouraging. The poll also found that 26% of men were not given the opportunity to decide which treatment was best for them, while 24% did not think the hospital specialist or nurse had given them enough information about the choice of treatment available to them.

The Prostate Cancer Charity Chief executive John Neate said, "Many men singled out doctors and nurses who gave them fantastic care. But all too often the comments described men's anger and frustration with an NHS inadequately resourced for proper prostate cancer care - preventing health professionals from giving men with prostate cancer the time, care and information they need and it is very disgraceful that so many men with prostate cancer still do not get appropriate care and support." Anna Wood, Breast Cancer Care said, “The survey was an important step forward in exposing the "woefully inadequate support and information available to men with prostate cancer and the levels of breast awareness have risen impressively in recent years, but we have a long way to g o to reach people in every community. Every man and woman must be able to easily access accurate, reliable information about what to look for and raise any concerns immediately with their doctors."
