Your most important resources are your GP and your hospital consultant. They know about your medical history and are best placed to give you advice.

We have not covered all the treatments for prostate cancer in this section, only those most frequently used. The material on our website is taken from our patient information booklet, which is clinician-reviewed.

Other useful resources

If you want to find out more, there are thousands of pages about prostate cancer on the web but bear in mind that not all of these will be fact-checked or fully accurate.
