Being diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer can make you feel like you have no time to think about your treatment options or plan what you want to do next. When information about your cancer is available, for example the grade and stage, your healthcare team can give you some perspective about how much time you have to make decisions, and the sort of decisions you need to make. In many cases, you will have a reasonable amount of time. It is important you take your time to research, gather information, think about how each option may affect you, and talk with others about your choices.
