Suggest treatment for advanced prostate cancer
Please advise if the requested procedure will give benefit to this member. As I remember, In stage IV Prostatic cancer, recommended surgical intervention is Radical Prostatectomy with bilateral orchiectomy.
He has advanced prostate cancer .
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have been diagnosed to have Cancer of the prostate in 2007 and only TURP was done in 2009.
Now you have been detected to have metastasis in bones suggesting advanced prostate cancer This is the cause of your bone pain.
Since prostate cancer is hormone dependent it is primary aim to castrate the patient to cut off the hormone (Testosterone) Since it has already spread to distant location(Bone) there is only one treatment option now that is castration(Bilateral Orchidectomy) followed by hormonal therapy.
so as to keep the disease under control to some extent. (Orchidectomy),
Please note that Radical Prostatectomy is advised only when cancer is confined to Prostate and not infiltrated beyond capsule of the prostate.
Consult qualified Urologist or Medical Oncologist for further treatment.
Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
There is no mortality due to Orchidectomy .
Thanks for follow up.
There is no mortality due to Orchidectomy itself but is due to the primary cancer of the prostate which is advanced to bones .
As there Testosterone is secreted by other tissues like adrenal and accessory tissue located at various organs you need to take hormone therapy to cut of the androgen completely to arrest the further spread of the cancer.
Thanks and Regards.
