People may not show symptoms of cancer until it has spread, and this can be stressful for the individual and their family.
1 in 8 men will develop Prostate cancer in their lifetime. Finding Prostate cancer early, when it is still localised, and has not spread, can significantly improve your chances of survival. If detected early, almost everyone (almost 100%) will survive their cancer for five years or more after they have been diagnosed. If detected late, around 50 out of 100 men (around 50%) will survive their cancer for five years or more after they have been diagnosed.
