tries to get the balance right. There is no "one size fits all" treatment for prostate cancer, so each man must learn as much as he can about various treatment options and, in conjunction with his physicians, make his own decision about what is best for him.

Men diagnosed with localized prostate cancer today will likely live for many years, so any decision that is made now will likely reverberate for a long time. Careful consideration of the different options is an important first step in deciding on the best treatment course.

what we choose to do depends on a combination of our age, our PSA level, the rate of change of our PSA level, our Gleason score, the DRE, scans etc that all help tell us how big the problem is, where it is and give an indication of how nasty it is.

Your doc will also be able to advise you about
starting work after treatment etc
All the best
