OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether prostate cancer (PCa) patients' coping strategies (i.e., fighting spirit, anxious preoccupation, fatalism, helplessness/hopelessness, and avoidance) significantly change during the first 3-year follow-up period of active surveillance (AS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Altogether, 104 patients on AS completed the Mini-Mental Adjustment to Cancer (Mini-MAC) at baseline (T0), at 10 and 12 months after diagnostic biopsy (T1 and T2, respectively) and then at 24- (T3) and 3...

Four focus groups were used to collected data from 24 men enrolled in the Prostate Cancer Research International: AS (PRIAS) pro...

The journey of men diagnosed with low-volume, potentially non-aggressive prostate cancer may be a multifaceted one. In fact, from the moment of diagnosis, patients deal with the opportunity and burden of choosing among multiple therapeutic/observational strategies that differ in terms of clinical and personal costs and benefits. The treatment/active surveillance decision can be an initially counterintuitive one and feelings of disorientation could emerge. Based on existing literature and our exp...
