What is Prostate Cancer?

Prostate cancer begins when cells in the prostate gland start to grow out of control. The prostate is a gland found only in males. It makes some of the fluid that is part of semen.

The size of the prostate can change as a man ages. In younger men, it is about the size of a walnut, but it can be much larger in older men.

Some prostate cancers grow and spread quickly, but most grow slowly. In fact, autopsy studies show that many older men (and even some younger men) who died of other causes also had prostate cancer that never affected them during their lives. In many cases, neither they nor their doctors even knew they had it.

About the Prostate Cancer Family Support Group 

Riverside Medical Clinic Charitable Foundation’s Prostate Cancer Family Support Group provides a forum to encourage education, support and discussion about various prostate cancer-related topics, including available treatments, managing side effects, and the benefits of diet, exercise and other lifestyle modifications. Members have time to interact with other prostate cancer patients to share their experiences and receive mutual support. 

While the Prostate Cancer Family Support Group usually meets on the Lower Level of the Riverside Medical Clinic’s Main Campus at 7117 Brockton Avenue in Riverside on the second Thursday of each month, during this time due to COVID-19, we have moved our support groups online for the time being.

Virtual meetings are FREE, and participants are welcome from all medical groups. Spouses, partners, adult family members, and close friends are welcome to attend.
