Prostate cancer symptoms: Signs include back pain that 'doesn't go away with rest'


MRI scans are also used sometimes to assess the prostate for possible problems, though biopsies can be necessary for further assessment.

Treatment options

There are a number of options available depending on how severe your cancer is.

Active surveillance – This is used to monitor the cancer closely for growth to then be treated only when or if required.

Surgery – This is implemented to remove your prostate, and will normally be done robotically via a keyhole approach.
