Prostate cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the world among individuals of both sexes combined and it is the second most common cancer in men. The survivors of prostate cancer and those close to them suffer physical and psychosocial problems. Psychosocial interventions are designed to provide support and cognitively reframe anxiety and uncertainty through information,  physical exercise, relaxation, or art and music therapies.

Key findings
?  Psychosocial interventions for men with prostate cancer may be psychoeducational therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (group or individual), group supportive therapy and individual supportive therapy, including counselling.
?  These may have small, short-term beneficial effects on certain domains of well-being such as increasing knowledge up to three months after the intervention.
?  Psychosocial interventions were not beneficial in improving the physical and mental component of general health quality of life (GHQoL).
