There are a number of different treatments for prostate cancer. We’ve listed them all here.

Advanced prostate cancer: Managing symptoms

Advanced (metastatic) prostate cancer is cancer that has spread from the prostate to other parts of the body. It can spread to any part of the body, but most commonly to the bones. It's not possible to cure advanced prostate cancer, but treatments can keep it under control, sometimes for several years.

Prostate problems

For some men, problems urinating could be a sign that they have a prostate problem, usually an enlarged prostate. Or it might be an infection or inflammation of the prostate, called prostatitis.
