Detailed medical history is necessary. At this age medical comorbidities are expected. Drug history should be carefully evaluated. As such prostate cancer has got no relation with nausea but the treatment history is necessary. Whether radiation is given or not. What the exact treatment are given for this disease should also be informed because some medications used in this disease has hepatotoxicity which may be associated with nausea also. Take care and consult your oncologist.
