The later stages of prostrate cancer can be said to be from the 3rd stage to the 5th stage. This article looks briefly at this stages specifically.

Stage three prostrate cancer is known as “T3”. This stage, which can be called the first of the Later stage of prostate cancer, commences the metastasizing of the cancerous cells. This means that the cancerous cells at this stage begin to spread. The major tissues where the spread takes place are the seminal vesicles and other tissues that are nearby.

The fourth stage is the “T4” stage. This stage enables the spread to affect other organs as well as tissues beyond those already affected in the third stage. Another major characteristic of this stage is that the cancerous cells are regionally located.

The fifth stage of prostate cancer (also known as advanced stage prostrate cancer or final stage of prostate cancer, or last stage of prostate cancer) is the most deadly stage of the disease because major organs of the body are affected.

This advanced or final prostate cancer stage is known as N+ or M+. If the cancer cells affects only the pelvic nymph nodes then it is known as N+ but when other organs of the body are affected, like the bones, kidneys, liver and all other organs distant from the prostate then it is known as M+.

While the treatments for these later stages of prostate cancer aren’t as easy as those of the early stages, there are still lots of people that have survived these stages. If they could, you CAN as well… if you find and do the things that they did.
