How ‘many’ years have you got?
Take heart from the consultant’s advice, and he and others here will know more when the biopsy results come through. They might take a couple of weeks, so the oncologist might not have them to hand next week.
Please come back with more information when you have it, including his PSA on diagnosis, his Gleason score post-biopsy, and his age.
Dad can look forward to a course of Hormone Therapy (the Zoladex he’s already on), probably others, and targeted Radiotherapy to kill off as many metastases as possible, and hopefully a long life living with cancer, as so many do.
A prostate cancer diagnosis is not definitely a guaranteed death sentence, as all the other male correspondents here can attest to. In fact, most men die with prostate cancer, rather than of it.
Best of luck to Dad.
