The mission of Us TOO is to help men and their families make informed decisions about prostate cancer detection and treatment through support, education and advocacy. Us TOO meetings provide men and their families with free information, materials and peer-to-peer support, so they can make informed choices on detection, treatment options, and coping with ongoing survivorship. The national organization was founded in 1990 by five men who had been treated for prostate cancer.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all in-person US Too Hawaii meetings have been cancelled until further notice. In their place, we are offering virtual meetings, via Zoom. There will one meeting per month, available to our members and others affected by prostate cancer, wherever you are.
Our next virtual meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 from 7 pm-9 pm.
Here is the agenda:
First 30 minutes for member sharing or questions/issues for discussion.
We will then review and discuss guidelines and issues related to the “Recurrence of Prostate Cancer”. Included will be 4 short Q&A video sessions with Dr. Mark Scholz (a prostate cancer specialist) on (i) adjuvant therapy, (ii) tracking of recurrence, (iii) treatment considerations for recurrence and (iv) treatment of oligometastatic disease. (60 minutes)
Time permitting, points for discussion will include:
Things that can be done after primary treatment to help prevent or predict recurrence.
Use of PSA Tracking and criteria used to determine if prostate cancer has come back (recurred).
How does PET imaging influence decision making after the cancer has come back?
What treatment options are available for recurrent prostate cancer?
What factors should be considered when deciding on a treatment option?
Current controversies on treatment options for recurrence.
