This is a Canadian Post Marketing Observational Study utilizing a prospective cohort design. Patients with Prostate Cancer who are prescribed Lupron will be entered into the study cohort and will be followed for a maximum of 36 months with recommended assessments at 3, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 and 36 months after baseline. Treatment of the patients and follow up will be according to the physician's judgment, regional regulations and the product monograph.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 99 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients will be enrolled from the offices of university or community urologists/oncologists across Canada treating patients with PCa.

i. Has provided written informed consent allowing the use of their data for the study and providing permission for contact by the study personnel

ii. Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer

iii. Prescribed Lupron as part of his treatment by his treating physician

Exclusion Criteria:

i. Currently participating in another prospective study including controlled clinical trials and observational studies.

• Exclusion of patient participating in other observational studies is necessary in order to prevent over-representation of specific patients in different studies, practical considerations regarding authority to utilize the patient's data and statistical issues related to lack of independence of the observations in different studies triggering multiplicity issues

ii. Patient cannot or will not sign informed consent

iii. Survival expectancy less than 2-3 years as per the treating physician's judgment

iv. Presence of other condition that, in the opinion of the treating physician, prohibits the patient from participating in the study or obscures the assessment of the treatment of Prostate Cancer

v. History of alcohol or drug abuse

vi. No longer than 6 months of therapy if currently on luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) treatment
