"Patient empowerment is not about becoming a medical expert; it is about learning how to become an expert patient."
The term “prostate cancer” is an umbrella term that covers all types of prostate cancer. There are five major categories, we call these The Five Shades of Blue. The first three Shades, Sky, Teal and Azure, represent men in the low, intermediate and high-risk categories. The last two Shades, Indigo and Royal, represent the categories of relapsed disease and metastatic disease respectively. Each of these five types is a different breed of prostate cancer that will require a different type of treatment.
