Prostate cancer most often develops from prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) in the prostate gland and can be described as localised, locally advanced or advanced (metastatic). Symptoms may include genito-urinary symptoms such as poor urinary stream and erectile dysfunction, or bone pain in cases where the disease has spread to the bones.

Prostate cancer is considered a slow growing cancer and is driven by the androgen axis. Subsequently, treatment for hormone sensitive prostate cancer (HSPC) revolves around androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) alongside radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
