After your treatment has finished, you’ll have regular check-ups, usually involving a PSA test|. These will probably continue for several years.
Some men may be seen regularly by their cancer specialist while others may have a PSA test at their GP surgery. It can be useful to speak to your cancer specialist about how you will be followed-up after treatment, and who you can discuss any problems with.
Many men find they get anxious for a while before the appointments. This is natural. It may help to get support from family, friends or one of the organisations listed in our database| during this time.
If you have any problems, or notice any new symptoms between check-ups, let your doctor know as soon as possible.
