The prospects for significant progress in prostate cancer in the near future are now better than ever. We can look forward to more effective prevention, earlier diagnosis, better staging, and more effective and less toxic therapy. A number of current research endeavours to improve our understanding of the disease may well translate into improved quality of life and improved survival prospects for those affected by prostate cancer. Charities such as Prostate Action are dedicated to supporting this effort.
