    I had none of the symptoms shown here! It was through regular blood testing that indicated a rise in my PSA levels. By the time of my Prostatectomy the cancer had spread to the Seminal vessels, that was 8 years ago. Now after Salvage radiation therapy 7 years ago the cancer has now metastasised to one spot in my spine which was treated with Stereotactic Radiation therapy in April last year The tumour has not grown since then. Currently I am recovering from a combination of Chemotherapy ( Docetaxel) 6 doses and hormone therapy (Gocelerin) my PSA level has dropped from 2.0 last August to 0.021 . This treatment resulting from trials that were conducted in the USA and the U.K. New treatments are on the way, my urologist is to treat androgen resistant PC with a combination of Lutetium and PSMA next March . There is real hope that this insidious disease will soon be cured with the many advances in research programs .

      Hi Brian. Thank you for the comment. These 5 symptoms are just some of the signs and not all of them that can point to prostate cancer. We are very glad that you were able to catch is quickly and begin treatments. It sounds like everything is going good and we hope that it continues.

    my husband Tony has gone on the stampede trial j arm, this will end in April of this year, but the results are brilliant I would recommend people to try these trials as they can cure or at least keep the cancer at bay, his psa is 0.008 for the last 2 years, come on lads, take a chance with these trial drugs, its the only way the medical profession will learn and treat in the future. If you need any help or our story please dont hesitate to contact me, Brenda x

      That is fantastic about your husband and the trial he has been on. Trials are the best way to researchers to learn more and continue to improve treatments for prostate cancer.
