If you found this website you’re probably seeking information about prostate cancer. The Prostate Cancer Information Group (PCIG) of the Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky is a network of hundreds of men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Many of us have been treated for the disease while others are still gathering information and making a decision about treatment.
Collectively, we possess a wealth of information and experience, which we share openly with those who request it. We believe that successfully surviving prostate cancer is often the result of proper education and confident decision-making. We provide information to men who are newly diagnosed, men who have been treated, men dealing with the side effects of treatment, and those whose cancer has returned.
We are not medical professionals and are not qualified to provide medical advice, but we are highly knowledgeable, experienced prostate cancer survivors who share our personal experience and knowledge on a peer-to-peer basis.
We know that men who are recently diagnosed with prostate cancer are often under stress and can benefit from the advice of those who have gone before. Many of us did not have a group like PCIG to turn to when we were diagnosed. Consequently, we now help men avoid the problems we encountered by providing the knowledge and experience we wish had been available to us.
