“If you have symptoms that could be caused by prostate cancer, you should visit a GP,” advises the NHS.
According to the health body, there’s no single, definitive test for prostate cancer. The GP will discuss the pros and cons of the various tests with you to try to avoid unnecessary anxiety.
Treatment for prostate cancer will depend on your individual circumstances, says the NHS.
“Sometimes, if the cancer has already spread, the aim is not to cure it but to prolong life and delay symptoms,” it adds.
