Prostate cancer occurs when abnormal cells develop in the prostate. These cells have the potential to continue to multiply, and possibly spread beyond the prostate. They may never spread beyond the prostate or they may remain there for many years. This is known as ‘localised’ or ‘early’ prostate cancer.

There is a lot to take in after you have been diagnosed with localised prostate cancer. You and your healthcare team must decide on the best treatment for your unique situation. Each form of treatment has pros and cons which you must consider.

This book will help you understand the different treatment options available to you and give you tips on how to decide the best course of action for you.
