Prostate cancer: Knowing your options

A guide to the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence recommendations for managing prostate cancer

This website is for patients with a new diagnosis of Prostate Cancer that has not spread.

It gives clear information about treatments and the risks and benefits of each option.  It should be used in consultation with a healthcare professional

Your healthcare professional may talk to you about the results from three tests that together indicate for you a particular “group” when considering your treatment options. The three results will be your Grade Group (from the biopsy), your Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test (from a blood test) and the stage of your cancer (from the MRI or clinical examination).

The group you are assigned is called your Cambridge Prognostic Group (CPG).

The options given are based on guidelines issued by National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Please enter the diagnostic criteria from your healthcare professional below:
