DIAMOND: A study looking at biomarkers in prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancer Some people have biomarkers that make them more vulnerable to develop certain types of cancer. In this study, doctors want to look for these biomarkers. They hope this information will help them: •learn more about the causes of cancer •develop better tests and treatments Everyone taking part gives blood, urine, poo and breath samples. Doctors may also ask for a tissue sample if you had, or are going to have, surgery. The main aim of this study is to look for biomarkers that might play a role in prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancer. Researchers are also looking for men who are going to have a biopsy to find out whether they have prostate cancer. This is part of a sub study called PRIM.

Some men may now also be offered a new way of having external radiotherapy called stereotactic radiotherapy. You have stereotactic radiotherapy over a shorter period of time than conventional radiotherapy. All of the treatments listed above work well, but doctors don’t know if one is better than the other or which one has the fewest side effects. In this trial, some men will have keyhole surgery to remove the prostate gland (laparoscopic prostatectomy), some will have conventional radiotherapy and some will have stereotactic radiotherapy. The aim of the study is to compare the different treatments to find out How long men live after each treatment...
