Our Mission

Men facing prostate cancer are often confused and distressed, and so are their partners.  The Prostate Zone aims to inform and support those men and women.

The Prostate Zone is written by a couple – Alan White and Fiona White – who have experienced prostate cancer.

Many websites offer information about prostate cancer.  The Prostate Zone aims to help men and their partners find the best information available –

  • Accurate
  • Up-to-date
  • Relevant
  • Unbiased

Alan faced prostate cancer twice, eventually choosing surgery to remove his prostate gland.  He wrote a book about his experience and has led the Bayside-Kingston Prostate Cancer Support Group for many years.

Alan and Fiona aim to support others who are going through the confusion, fear and uncertainty that prostate cancer tends to create.

This website will cover issues such as –

  • Understanding and coming to grips with your diagnosis
  • Getting your head around the treatment options available to you
  • Dealing with what happens after treatment, including incontinence and erectile dysfunction





And then there's the book

Being diagnosed with prostate cancer once in a lifetime is enough. In 2011, Alan White was facing a second round with this life-threatening disease.

Alan’s years of experience as a natural health practitioner and counsellor helped him and his wife, Fiona, to make the choice that no man really wants to make – surgical removal of the prostate gland – and to recover, physically and emotionally.

Talking about the things not usually discussed – sex after surgery, giant incontinence pads and how to wrangle your overnight urine bag – Alan shares his story and his discoveries. Fiona adds her tips for partners of men facing prostate cancer.

Alan is involved in ongoing research through the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre to develop better ways of helping men make well-informed choices about their prostate cancer treatment. He continues to work as a counsellor and natural health practitioner, with a special focus on men’s health and wellbeing.

We’ve lost my prostate, mate! is Alan’s story about the diagnosis, the decision making, the surgery and the road to recovery. He shares the good, the bad and the ugly along the way, providing helpful tips for fellow prostate cancer sufferers. Armed with his irrepressible laughter and a very determined wife, Alan shows that there is life after losing your prostate, mate.
