Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
If you are located in a city where oncologist/general surgeon are available or a hospital run by available,your patient may be advised to seek radiotherapy of metastasis (likely to be from prostate)and chemotherapy(drugs) ,hormones and supportive medicines at a reasonable expenditure, with far off metastasis, no surgery of prostate may be advisable, so only palliative (supportive care0 may be advised. FNAC report shall be co-related with raised PSA , and Gleasons score( a score for histological amount of malignant cells in prostate )will also determine line of action.In Govt. set ups expenses are subsidised
