When prostate cancer has spread to other parts of the body, such as the bones, you can have treatments to help to control the cancer. Although the cancer cannot be cured, it can be controlled, sometimes for several years. Treatments can also help relieve symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Your doctor and nurse will help you to understand the treatments and how they may affect you. If you have someone close to you, it can help to take them to appointments with your healthcare team. They may remember any questions you have or information you have been given.
