Stages of prostate cancer
There are three stages of prostate cancer – early, locally advanced, and late and each has different treatments. If prostate cancer is detected, your doctor or surgeon will need to determine which stage it is at, to decide which treatments will be available.
About 60% of men are diagnosed with early disease, 30% with locally advanced and 10% with advanced or late-stage disease. However, even when prostate cancer has reached the late stage, it may still be possible to slow down its growth.
