“I can’t imagine finding my way without Island Prostate Centre.”

Newly diagnosed

You’re not alone.

Prostate cancer. They may be some of the toughest words you’ll ever hear.

Rest assured – you’ve come to the right place. We offer health guidance and emotional support to navigate a prostate cancer diagnosis, right from the start.

Prostate Health Nurse Navigator Program

A first step

If you’ve just received your diagnosis, this is the place to turn first.

Our Nurse Navigator is here to answer your questions, discuss your treatment options, and support you in your journey. Together, you can map a prostate health plan and explore IPC support services and community referrals right for your situation.

“It was a huge relief to talk to someone.”
“We sat down together to discuss my options and possible next steps.”
“The Nurse Navigator spent nearly two hours with us which was so helpful because we were completely overwhelmed.”

Time and space to weigh your options.

We offer more than information. We provide guidance in decision-making and time and space to chat things through – room that can otherwise be difficult to find.

Because prostate cancer isn’t a solo journey, we welcome you and your family – however you define it.
