Having tests for prostate cancer
About this booklet
Tests for prostate cancer can be divided into two groups:
- Diagnostic tests, which are carried out to find out if you have prostate cancer (see pages 12 to 17).
- Staging tests, which are done if you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. These tests help doctors decide which treatment is most suitable for you (see pages 21 to 25).
We cannot advise you about the best treatment for you. This information can only come from your GP and specialist doctors, who know your full medical history.
