COVID-19 and Prostate Cance

These are indeed trying times. As we grapple to control the COVID-19 pandemic, you as prostate cancer patients may in particular be worried about both your risk of contracting COVID-19 or of how the pandemic will compromise your prostate cancer treatment plan.

Prostatepedia is dedicated to conveying as much information from the most reliable sources as we can as the situation unfolds.

In our March 2020 issue, you’ll read commentary from three leading prostate cancer experts. As you’ll note, all three mention that the situation here in the United States and abroad for both the general population and for prostate cancer patients changes daily.

The truth is that there is a lot we don’t know. This uncertainty most definitely adds to our feelings of anxiety and fear. The more we know, and the more positive steps we take to ensure our health and wellbeing, the better we all will feel.

The best thing you can do today is:

  • limit your exposure to other people;
  • wash your hands well throughout the day;
  • maintain a healthy lifestyle
    by eating well, exercising and getting enough rest;
  • contact your doctor immediately if you have any symptoms;
  • contact your doctor if you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive.

In the coming weeks, please visit us here updated conversations with various prostate cancer experts about the implications for prostate cancer patients.

The best way to ensure that you and your loved ones receive this information, free of charge, is to sign up for our Prostatepedia Weekly. Email us at to be added to the list. Please be sure to include your full name and telephone number.

Finally, we would love to interview any patients about your experiences, particularly those of you in Washington, Northern California, New York, and Europe. Please email if you’re open to speaking with us; all interviews will be published anonymously.
