Introduction to prostate cancer

Approximately 10,000 men die from prostate cancer every year in the UK but this disease does not have to be a death sentence. Tumours of the prostate are very slow growing and sufferers may therefore delay treatment until there is a risk of the cancer spreading.

Traditional treatments have a variety of side effects including loss of libido, sexual dysfunction, change of physical appearance and urinary incontinence amongst others. Prostate cancer is very difficult to treat and detect. It causes very few symptoms and is often not diagnosed until it has reached an advanced stage.
