A range of support to suit you

With more men now surviving prostate cancer, the importance of dealing with the side effects of treatment has never been greater. It’s as important to not only offer you the very best treatment plan designed specifically for your needs, but also to help you manage life after cancer. 

At HCA Healthcare UK, we have a team of cancer experts who can provide you with the support that is right for you, including help with diet, physical therapy or emotional support. They’ll work with you to put a plan in place that suits your individual needs.

There is lots of help and support available to help you manage any short-term or longer-term effects of treatment. A diagnosis and treatment for prostate cancer can affect your emotional relationships as well as your physical relationships. Erectile dysfunction, loss of sexual desire, changes in orgasm, or changes in body image can all impact your sexual relationships after treatment. While there is both medical and emotional support to help you in your sexual recovery, it’s important to know these effects of treatment are common and you are not alone, our experts are here to help you get the support that is right for you.

Male support groups

It can be difficult for men to make the first step in seeking support, especially after cancer treatment.


Find out how male support groups are enabling men to open up about their prostate cancer experience.

Sex, intimacy and prostate cancer

It’s important that if you want to, you can talk about the impact of prostate cancer treatment on your relationships and sex life. There is a lot of medical and emotional support available to you so that you can still have a fulfilled and healthy sex life after prostate cancer treatment.

Here Amy Spurdens, Urological Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) at the London Bridge Hospital, part of HCA Healthcare UK, discusses the impact that prostate cancer and its treatment can have on sex, relationships and intimacy, and some of the ways you and your partner can navigate these.

Our teams of cancer specialists, including consultants, cancer nurses and other cancer healthcare experts, come together to ensure that each individual patient receives a personalised treatment plan.
