Treating

Find out about different treatments for early (localised) prostate cancer, and get information to help you make decisions about your treatment.

  • Making treatment decisions

    Your doctors may tell you there are different options for your treatment. It can be difficult to make a decision, but information and support will help.

  • Monitoring prostate cancer

    Monitoring prostate cancer may include active surveillance or watchful waiting.

  • Surgery

    Some men might be offered surgery to treat early prostate cancer.

  • Radiotherapy

    Radiotherapy for early prostate cancer is usually given from an external machine (external beam radiotherapy).

  • Hormonal therapies

    Hormonal therapy may be given on its own as a treatment for men who aren't fit enough for surgery or radiotherapy.

  • Clinical trials

    Many people are offered a trial as part of treatment. Find out more to help you decide if a trial is right for you.
