Recognising the Aggressive and Non-Aggressive forms of Prostate Cancer

Many men with non-aggressive forms of prostate cancer do not need treatment and it is inappropriate to treat these because they have drastic side effects and can be life-changing. The Institute is therefore developing the ‘tiger-pussycat’ test for prostate cancer that will distinguish the aggressive cancers that need treatment (the tigers) from the less aggressive cancers that do not (the pussycats) saving the need for unnecessary invasive procedures.
