Questions and Answers

What is the best medicine for Prostate Cancer in Stage IV?
Posted by Sunilkumar P
[display_name id=”0″]Stage IV prostate cancer means that the cancer has extended beyond the prostate capsule (the outer boundary of the prostate) and has metastasized (spread) to other distant organs or tissues. Specialists will most often recommend the following when you are diagnosed with a stage IV prostate cancer:* Hormone therapy.
* Radical prostatectomy, with removal of the lymph nodes of the pelvis. This may be followed with radiation therapy.
* External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT) optionally followed by hormone therapy.
* Radiation Seed Implant Therapy (Brachytherapy).
* Hormone therapy , External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT) , or Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) as palliative treatment for symptoms.Additionally, there are clinical trials available for:

* Combination radical prostatectomy and orchiectomy.
* Chemotherapy is also in clinical trial.

There may also be other clinical trials of new therapies that may be an option for you depending on your specific situation.

Depending on your specific situation, watchful waiting may be an option.

When choosing a treatment with your doctor, you should weigh the different side effects of each option against each other. Which side effects are you more comfortable in dealing with for a short term, or a long term?

Be sure to consider the tumor grade and/or Gleason score when choosing an option– the higher either of these numbers will indicate the need for quick and intense therapy.

Prostate cancer?Operating cancerous prostate.

[display_name id=”0″]Sorry. I have prostate cancer also. About 18 months ago I had an biopsy and out of 12 biops one had a cancer cell. I have to go back in December to have another to see what stage that I am in. Before my Gleason score was 3+3. That is borderline for the stage that will spread. I bought a book from Mayo Clinic, and which I had not. There are so many options that it is unreal. I know one thing. I will not have a radical procedure done. Five days, and maybe more plus wearing a catheir bag for eight weeks. Serious bleeding, with that procedure, and also with the Labascopy also. If the cancer has spread into the lymp nodes, the radical procedure is the only way they can remove them. If that happens with me “I am just going to stick my head between my legs and kiss my ass good-bye”. I will know my latest stage on December 5th..Wish me luck……
