Prostate cancer is around prostate and a little in the rectum. Is that treatable? What should we expect? Life expectancy?

In brief: Treatable

prostate cancer remains very treatable when confined to soft tissue.
once it metastasizes to bone, it is painful and harder to control. if not in bone, easily 5-10 years.
