CHICAGO — Matthew Curtin learned he had prostate cancer after a routine physical examination in October 2019, when test results indicated there was a problem.

A biopsy confirmed the news, and doctors told him that surgery to remove his prostate was the best option. The surgery went well, and, two years later, there is no indication that the cancer has returned.

But for Mr. Curtin, 66, diagnosis and surgery were only the beginning of a “clinical and psychological and emotional adventure” — one he felt that many urologists were not equipped to handle, because he was gay and the majority of doctors and their patients were not.
