Who are we

mentalking

The group was started by a few Cardiff men who, at various ages have been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Some are undergoing treatment while some have completed their treatment.

The group was formed to help men come to terms with the challenge of the diagnosis, and be better able to handle the difficult periods when it is often traumatic to talk to people, even those very close to you.

Our members come from all walks of life, professionals, technical, butchers, bakers, all trades.  We pride ourselves on having diverse skills and together, we have grown to be some 80 strong and now have the benefit to have contacts within top consultants.

 

The subjects we discuss are numerous and wide reaching, including such issues as;

  • Active Monitoring
  • Radical Prostectomy
  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Cryosurgery
  • Hormone Therapy
  • Trials
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Incontinence
  • Diet
  • Emotional difficulties

We recruit topical learned speakers from all facets of the medical profession to advise us and keep our information fully up to date.
