Advanced prostate cancer is cancer that has spread from the prostate to other parts of the body. It’s also called metastatic prostate cancer. Prostate cancer can spread to any part of the body, but it most commonly spreads to the bones and lymph nodes.
Advanced prostate cancer can cause symptoms such as bone pain and problems urinating. There are treatments available to help manage these symptoms.
It’s not possible to cure advanced prostate cancer, but treatments can keep it under control, often for several years.
