I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.


My husband has had LULRON INJECTIONS TO CONTROL PSA from prostate cancer. His prostate was removed in 2005. It was in the past year that the PSA began to climb,but very little. LUPRON injections have been given recently. A series of two. (Oct.15 and again Feb15) Each one is suppose to last three months.
His concern is that the sweats are accompanied by hills and neither one is letting up. Is it common to have chills with this?
His prostate was remove and followed by radiation and one hormone injection.(3 months after the pristate removal)
The chills are concerning him as no doctor that he visits can explain the chills.
Can you?

My husband is 67 yrs old and has no trouble going to the bathroom -no blood in urine / stool - frequency is normal and without discomfort or pain. His PSA level is currently 5.4 and we ve been monitoring this for several years showing a slight increase annually. At there any oral medications he can take to lower his PSA? And/or is PSA level anything to be concerned about ? Thank you.

I had prostate cancer a year ago, I had implanted radiation seeds into my prostate. After 3 months I had CT Scan on my pelvis and whole body, no sign of cancer, however my PSA still high, up to 40, the Urologist doctor do not know why, they say possible I still have very small micro cancer. 6 month later the Urologist decided to give injection of LUPRON, 22.5 mg. for 3 moths, 3 month later my PSA drop to 0.37 can you explain it. I appreciate your input. Thank you, Cesar
