Advanced prostate cancer is cancer that has spread from the
prostate to other parts of the body. You may also hear it called
'metastatic' prostate cancer.
It is not possible to cure advanced prostate cancer, but you
will be offered hormone therapy, which can often keep your cancer
under control for several years.
Advanced prostate cancer can cause symptoms and there are
treatments available to manage these. Let your doctor or nurse know
if any symptoms, for example bone pain or urinary problems, get
worse, or if you develop any new symptoms.
Ask your doctor or nurse if you have any questions about
