Following publication of this guideline, the Oncology Section and the British Uro-Oncology Group (BUG) sought members' opinions by means of a questionnaire.  In January 2014, following consultation with BAUS and other interested groups, guideline CG175 - Prostate cancer: diagnosis & treatment was published on the NICE website; this was updated in 2019 (see below) to reflect recent changes in diagnosing prostate cancer.
