Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
Rising PSA value in a prostate cancer survivor is alarming issue. It should be verified whether there is any metastasis or not. Treatment will differ according to the site of metastasis. Chemotherapy is mandatory only after confirmation of visceral metastasis. At first you should go for a detailed metastatic work up of your father , consult an oncologist.
