My dad was told he had prostate cancer three years ago.The docs said they couldn't operate because of the location,so they gave him radiation.For the past three years they have gave him a shot once a month and checked his psa levels witch to this day come back normal.In february he was feeling really bad so he went to the ER where they found his prostate cancer was back.The same strand of prostate cancer is now in his spine,lungs,lymph nodes and prostate.They no this because they did a biopsy on his lungs.They basically act as if there is nothing they can do to help him?Is there anybody out there that can help my dad.thanks!
Metastatic prostate cancer is consistent with the symptoms you describe. This means that prostate cancer cells have spread to other organs and locations in the body. A complete workup with a medical oncologist is suggested to see what therapeutic options are available for your father.
