Prostate cancer (PCA) is the most common malignancy and a major cause of death in men but, importantly, a substantial proportion will live for several years following diagnosis. However, they face the prospect of experiencing symptoms, side-effects of treatment and diminished quality of life. The patient’s psychological adjustment is particularly complex, given the potential trajectory of the disease, from the point of diagnosis, with its immediate impact, to the phase of palliative care, with its attendant issue of facing mortality. To date very few psychological intervention research specifically targeting men with prostate cancer has been reported.
Recent advances in clinical treatments aimed at improving the health of people with a chronic disorder are based on the concept of mindfulness.

In over 35 years of research it has been seen demonstrated that a higher state of mindfulness correlates with an improved quality of life in both physiological and psychological terms.
