All about Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is now the most common cancer in men
(not including certain types of skin cancer).

More than 34,000 men are diagnosed in the UK each year

Out of every 100 cancers diagnosed in men, 24 are prostate cancers

However, as is the case with many cancers, if prostate cancer is found early enough, the chances of removing or killing the cancer cells completely are good. In addition, if the cancer is localised, which means that it has not spread outside the prostate gland, then the number of available treatment options increases. One of these treatment options is a pioneering new treatment called prostate brachytherapy.

Prostate brachytherapy is a proven effective treatment for early localised prostate cancer. It offers the same chance of successful treatment as conventional treatments but with a lower rate of incontinence and impotence.

In this section you can find out more about what cancer is and more information about prostate cancer, its symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. There is also information about the stages and grades of prostate cancer which play a large part in deciding which treatment is most suitable for you.
