In brief: Lymph nodes/bones
Commonly spread to lymph nodes- then spread to bones very commonly- especially the pelvic bones, spines.
Less commonly than lymph nodes and bones- prostate cancer also can spread to liver and lung.

In brief: Extra capsular also
Not to confuse the issue, but the initial site of concern for spread is outside of the capsule surrounding the majority of the prostate gland, as discussed in partin tables, this can often be treated at the time of definitive local therapy.
If further progression occurs it can go to lymph nodes regionally and ultimately bone distantly.
