In 2008, the National institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) published the clinical guideline ‘Prostate cancer: diagnosis and treatment’. This sets out recommendations on the tests, treatment, care and support that men who have suspected or diagnosed prostate cancer should be offered, including those men who have advanced prostate cancer. To ensure that these recommendations continue to reflect the latest available evidence, NICE is currently updating this guideline.
