In brief: Yes

Even for advanced prostate cancer, there are hormonal manipulations we can do to control the cancer. If the cancer responds to the medications, life expextancy can be years.

In brief: CAPRA score predicts

Many prostate cancers are not destined to be lethal, and most men will ultimately die from causes other than of the disease.
(capra) score predicts both pathologic status and recurrence after surgery based on psa, grade, stage, age, and percent of cores positive; the sum yields a 0–10 score, with every 2 points representing roughly a doubling of risk of recurrence. It has been shown to predict.
