Thanks Ayush for the query,
Please let me know is it biopsy confirmed that your father has cancer of prostate or it is on the basis of Psa level that you are thinking of cancer. This level of Psa is significant of enlarged prostate. If it is not confirmed and the testicles are already removed you need to observe your father and repeat PSA level after three months. For exact treatment you need to have full evaluation of the prostatic cancer like gleason scoring, status of pelvic lymphadenopathy, any evidence of distant metastasis . For this you need to see Clinical Oncologist if you have not done so who will guide you properly.
Treatment of prostatic cancer is stage and symptom dependent. Any more query you are welcome.
