In brief: It depends
Not all prostate cancer behaves the same way.
However, it can spread to lymph nodes, bones, liver, lungs and brain.

Prostate cancer most commonly spreads to the bones and lymph nodes
1 doctor agrees
In brief: Several areas
Prostate cancer tends to spread over time if left untreated and if it is an aggressive form of the cancer. It tends to spread to local lymph nodes, bones, and surround organs such as the bladder and rectum.

In brief: Bones, LN, lungs...
Clinically, spreading to bones - spines, pelvic bone, hips, ribs is most common & more than to lungs and regional lymph nodes since bony metastasis is more prone to induce symptoms leading to early detection.
Besides, all testing for metastasis is highly insensitive at its early phase of spreading and the cancers spreading to new sites may take weeks, months, & even decades to grow & be detectable
