Having tests for prostate cancer
About this booklet
Tests for prostate cancer can be divided into the following 2 groups:
- Diagnostic tests, which are done to find out if you have prostate cancer (see pages 12 to 23).
- 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 24 to 26).
We cannot advise you about healthcare decisions. You should talk to your doctor, who knows your medical history.
