Alan Moore was diagnosed with prostate cancer in October 2014. After a routine blood test he was referred to the Royal Derby Hospital where he was told he had an enlarged prostate and a prostate and a raised specific antigen PSA level.


After undergoing a biopsy Alan was told he had prostate cancer and his consultant suggested he had his prostate removed. Then one of his consultants suggested low-dose brachytherapy which was being carried out at St James’s Hospital in Leeds. After meeting his consultant Mr Bottomley, the procedure took place in June last year.
