Can you live 20 years with prostate cancer?

"The chances of dying from prostate cancer increase significantly depending on the severity of the disease. For example, one study found that patients with a Gleason score of 2 had a minimal chance of dying from prostate cancer while those with a Gleason score of 8 to 10 had a 60% chance. However, after 20 years only 3 of the 217 participants had survived.

What is end stage prostate cancer like?

"The symptoms patients with advanced prostate cancer experience depend on where the cancer has spread to. Common symptoms of advanced prostate cancer include extreme tiredness, urinary and bowel problems, bone fractures, eating problems, and weight loss. Even if the cancer is still growing, there are treatments available to help manage these symptoms. You can find the most recent prostate cancer clinical trials by using Power, which allows you to search trials tailored to your condition, location, and ideal treatment." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Where does prostate cancer usually spread first?

"When prostate cancer spreads to other parts of the body, it usually spreads to the bones first. This often causes pain and weak bones that are prone to breaking. Patients can lower their chance of fractures by using medicines like bisphosphonates, while radiation and pain medicines are sometimes used to relieve pain. Power makes it easy to find prostate cancer clinical trials tailored to your condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Is prostate cancer usually fatal?

"Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death for men in the United States, with about 1 in 41 men dying of prostate cancer. Despite being a serious disease, the majority of men diagnosed from prostate cancer do not die from it. Currently, there are over 3 million men in the U.S. who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and are still alive today.

What is stage 2 prostate cancer?

"Stage 2 prostate cancers have not grown outside the prostate, but are larger and have higher Gleason scores than those in stage 1. In addition, stage 2 cancers that are not treated with either radiation or surgery are more likely than stage 1 cancers to spread beyond the prostate and cause further symptoms. If you are looking to join a prostate cancer clinical trial, Power can help you search recent trials by condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Can metastatic prostate cancer go into remission?

"When metastatic prostate cancer is first treated with hormonal therapy, it usually responds to treatment and goes into remission. However, there are times when cancer cells resist treatment, as prostate cancer cells have the potential to grow without male hormones. This condition is known as hormone-refractory prostate cancer, and doctors often prescribe anti-androgen drugs in these cases to try and slow cancer growth. You can find the most recent prostate cancer clinical trials by using Power, which allows you to search trials tailored to your condition, location, and ideal treatment." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How long can you live with stage three prostate cancer?

"Stage 3 prostate cancers have broken through the covering of the prostate gland and have possibly spread into the seminal vesicles. Approximately 95% of those diagnosed with stage 3 prostate cancer will survive for 5 years or more after being diagnosed. To find active prostate cancer clinical trials in your area, you can use Power to search by condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Can someone with prostate cancer get a woman pregnant?

"After initial treatment for prostate cancer, it is almost impossible for a man to father children through sexual intercourse. This is because ejaculation is impossible after the prostate and seminal vesicles have been removed, so sperm is unable to physically leave the body. In addition, radiation therapy impairs fertility as radiated prostate cells usually produce semen that transports sperm ineffectively. If you are looking to join a prostate cancer clinical trial, Power can help you search recent trials by condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is the most aggressive form of prostate cancer?

"The most aggressive form of neuroendocrine prostate cancer is small cell carcinoma, which develops in the small round cells of the neuroendocrine system. This type of cancer often goes undiagnosed until it has advanced, with survival rates tending to be low. However, if it is detected in the early stages, the chances of recovery are much higher. You can find the most recent prostate cancer clinical trials by using Power, which allows you to search trials tailored to your condition, location, and ideal treatment." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How long can you live with Gleason 7 prostate cancer?

"A study from 2009 found that the mean age of participants with Gleason 7 prostate cancer was 69.5 years, with 100% of those at-risk living an additional 6 years. Despite sounding advanced, cancers with a Gleason score of 7 almost never result in death, even 10 years after being diagnosed. Power makes it easy to find prostate cancer clinical trials tailored to your condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How long can a man stay on hormone therapy for prostate cancer?

"Hormone therapy for prostate cancer can be offered for up to six months before radiotherapy and may continue during and after radiotherapy for up to three years. Some patients may use hormone therapy exclusively when radiotherapy and surgery are not suitable for their situation. Hormone therapy can shrink the prostate and any cancer that has spread, making future treatment more effective. To find active prostate cancer clinical trials in your area, you can use Power to search by condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Is prostate cancer a painful death?

"Some patients dying from prostate cancer get pain if their cancer presses against the nerves or makes their bones weak. However, not all patients dying from prostate cancer experience pain, and if there is pain there are treatments available to help reduce and manage it. Doctors can prescribe medicine depending on the cause of pain, and can also change the type of medicine or dose depending on how it is working. If you are looking to join a prostate cancer clinical trial, Power can help you search recent trials by condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Can you live 10 years with metastatic prostate cancer?

"The average prostate cancer patient is only 2 percent less likely to survive than a man without prostate cancer. This is because most prostate cancers are diagnosed early and are curable, which makes the average long-term prognosis relatively optimistic. You can find the most recent prostate cancer clinical trials by using Power, which allows you to search trials tailored to your condition, location, and ideal treatment." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How long can you live with prostate cancer in the bones?

"A study from 2017 estimated that patients with prostate cancer that has spread to the bones have a 1-year survival rate of 35 percent, 3-year survival rate of 12 percent, and a 5-year survival rate of 6 percent. Life expectancy for metastatic bone cancer is influenced by factors such as age, the rate of spread, and early detection. Power makes it easy to find prostate cancer clinical trials tailored to your condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is the survival rate of a man with prostate cancer?

"As long as the prostate cancer has not spread or has only spread to nearby structures or lymph nodes, the 5-year relative survival rate is nearly 100%. Once the cancer has spread to other parts of the body, the 5-year relative survival rate drops to 30%. However, these numbers are estimates and don't take all factors into account. In addition, men diagnosed with prostate cancer today have a better outlook as treatments improve over time. To find active prostate cancer clinical trials in your area, you can use Power to search by condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

At what age is prostate cancer not treated?

"Men with prostate cancer between the ages of 70 and 79 are more likely to receive no therapy, while almost all men over 80 received no therapy. Even in cases of similar life expectancies, older men are less likely to receive therapy than younger men. If you are looking to join a prostate cancer clinical trial, Power can help you search recent trials by condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What age does prostate cancer occur?

"While prostate cancer is uncommon in men under 40, the chances of developing the disease rise dramatically after age 50, with approximately 6 in 10 cases occurring in men over the age of 65. Other risk factors for prostate cancer include ethnicity, geography, family history, and genetic mutations. You can find the most recent prostate cancer clinical trials by using Power, which allows you to search trials tailored to your condition, location, and ideal treatment." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is the best treatment for early stages of prostate cancer?

"While radiation therapy is a good choice for many with early-stage prostate cancer, it is the best treatment available for older men or those with other health problems. Radiation therapies for treating prostate cancer include external beam radiation, 3-D conformal radiation therapy, and brachytherapy. However, new treatments for prostate cancer are currently being studied in clinical trials, and we will not know if these new treatments are more effective until the trials are complete. Power makes it easy to find prostate cancer clinical trials tailored to your condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Can a blood test detect prostate cancer?

"There is a blood test called the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test for detecting prostate cancer. However, the test is not perfect and cannot detect all types of prostate cancer. PSA is a protein made by the prostate, which can leak into the blood depending on age and prostate health. The PSA test measures the level of PSA in your blood and can be performed during a GP surgery. To find active prostate cancer clinical trials in your area, you can use Power to search by condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What happens when hormone therapy stops working for prostate cancer?

"The majority of prostate cancers eventually stop responding to hormone therapy, meaning they continue to grow even when androgen levels are low or unresistant. These are known as castration resistant cancers, and newer hormone therapies have become available to effectively treat these tumors. Power makes it easy to find prostate cancer clinical trials tailored to your condition, treatment, or location." - Anonymous Online Contributor
