Men and Cancer: Staying Healthy, Active, and Strong
At MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper, patients are considered a survivor the moment they are diagnosed with cancer, and our team is dedicated to helping survivors live their lives to the fullest throughout their cancer journey. We offer a full range of supportive services to help patients manage their cancer diagnosis, treatment, recovery and beyond, including educational programs that focus on wellness, quality of life, and health promotion. The Cancer Survivorship Program offers educational programs for the enrichment of all cancer survivors.
Join us for an online event focused on issues and concerns men may face after cancer diagnosis and treatment. Our experts, Robert A. Somer, MD and Caroline Pyle, APN, will discuss health maintenance, cancer screenings, monitoring for recurrence, ostomy care, side effects related to treatment including erectile dysfunction, community resources, and support groups.
Caroline Pyle, APN, is a nurse practitioner and a valued member of our gastrointestinal multidisciplinary team. She has been a nurse since 2011 - graduating from Grand Canyon University's nursing program, followed by her MSN/Family Nurse Practitioner education from Rowan University.
