Chemotherapy for Metastatic Prostate Cancer

Although many correlate chemotherapy to cancer treatment, it is typically reserved for those men with prostate cancer  in one of the following categories. According to CancerCare.org, If a man has a rapidly rising PSA that hormonal therapy can’t control, then doctors may recommend chemotherapy.  If those who are experience symptoms like weight loss, pale appearance, and other physical problems, chemotherapy should be an option to consider. Lastly, if the metastasis of the disease causes it to spread to other organs and body parts rapidly, chemotherapy can reduce the need of multiple radiations and the loss of red blood cell in the bone marrow, which can lead to anemia.  Like anything else involving your cancer treatment, it is best to consult your doctor for their opinion about your case.
