The Impact of Prostate Cancer Treatment on Patients’ Everyday Life

For years, prostate cancer has carried a stigma of being an easy cancer: one that men live with and that doctors can simply “watch and wait”. But many people do not realize that prostate cancer is a complex disease. For some men, it can progress to advanced stages that require treatment and can have a significant impact on their daily lives.

Movember 2021: #LifeisMeantForLiving

During Movember, Bayer is sharing experiences from men living with different stages of prostate cancer to raise awareness and educate others who may be impacted by this disease.


At Bayer, we believe a patient’s #LifeIsMeantForLiving – meaning surviving and thriving. One way to achieve this is through appropriate treatment options.


Recent research among men with prostate cancer has shown that fatigue and other treatment side effects can negatively impact quality of life. This #Movember we want to highlight that reducing negative side effects should be a key consideration.


We have asked patients and caregivers from around the world to tell us what #LifeisMeantForLiving means to them.

Follow Bayer’s Twitter and Facebook channels this month for more information on prostate cancer.
