Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed malignancy and the second-leading cause of cancer death in men. The
10-year survival rate for all stages of prostate cancer is 93%. Men with prostate cancer live with the disease for many years,
and the side effects of the disease and treatments have physical and psychosocial implications for the patient, spouse, and
family. This case study explores the evolution of a patient with prostate cancer, from time of diagnosis through treatment
decision making and ultimately end of life. Discussion of the implications for practice and research is included.
