Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer at Fitzwilliam Hospital

What is prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer occurs when abnormal cells develop in the prostate and start to grow in an uncontrolled way.

There are different types of prostate cancer. In some men prostate cancer grows too slowly to cause any problems and does not require treatment but, in other men, prostate cancer grows quickly and spreads aggressively and treatment is needed to stop it spreading and prevent serious illness.

The different types of prostate cancer include:

  • Early prostate cancer – often called localised prostate cancer. Only the prostate gland is affected and cancer has not spread.
  • Locally advanced prostate cancer - cancer has spread to tissues around the gland.
  • Advanced prostate cancer - cancer has spread beyond the gland to other parts of your body.
