Prostate cancer can be a very scary diagnosis and can evoke fear of losing masculinity. After the diagnosis usually men (and their partners) are focused on surviving the cancer and choosing the best treatment option.

Being in a long-term relationship can offer various benefits such as trust, understanding, respect, and some form of predictability. These factors can contribute to a feeling of settlement which a lot of people strive towards. Going through the stages of getting to know each other, discovering each other’s tastes and preferences, having your first disagreement, discussing future perspectives, understanding family background, morals, religion and values, is very exciting, rewarding and challenging at the same time. Most people appreciate the phase of settling and finding balance and harmony as well.
