Sometimes. Other times, prostate cancer spreads quickly and can kill. And it's hard to predict what a man's cancer will do.
Because experts can't always tell if a man's cancer will be aggressive, many men who are diagnosed face a difficult choice: a treatment that might not be needed and could leave them with life-changing side effects, or to watch and wait and hope the cancer doesn't spread and need treatment. And men often have to make a choice between other treatments, which each have different pros and cons.
Our Specialist Nurses support men facing tough treatment decisions, and we produce award-winning health information to help them navigate complex medical issues.
You can help us be there for men when they need support by volunteering, donating, or marching with us.
