Prostate cancer usually affects men over 50. When it has spread outside the prostate to tissue nearby it is called locally advanced prostate cancer.
Our Cancer Information Nurse, Richard, takes a look at some prostate cancer basics. He discusses the PSA test, different treatments, and their side effects.
A support group for anyone affected by prostate cancer to come together, share experiences, and ask questions.
Order or download our free booklet about locally advanced prostate cancer. It covers symptoms, diagnosis, possible treatments, and practical issues.
The stage of the cancer describes its size and whether it has spread. The grade describes how fast it may grow.
Waiting to hear the results of tests can be a worrying time. You can talk to us about how you are feeling.
