The good news

There are two important ‘good news’ messages that members of our group would like to convey:-

  • There is strong evidence that in many cases treatment of prostate cancer can result in long term remission, particularly when it has been detected at an early stage when the cancer is confined within the prostate. Early detection is the key to enabling a completely effective treatment with least possible side effects.
  • Even if it is not detected early in its development, there are treatments which can still control many of the associated symptoms and problems, enabling an enjoyable and useful life for many years.
