About this booklet

This booklet is for anyone who has been diagnosed with advanced (metastatic) prostate cancer. This is when prostate cancer has spread to other parts of the body, such as the bones. There is also information for carers, family members and friends.

The booklet explains the different treatments for advanced prostate cancer and their side effects. It also has information about the feelings you might experience, and how your relationships, work and finances might be affected.
