Well!! Isn't this a busy website!! I'm actually overwhelmed with how many men have to face up to this cancer!! So I've registered on here as my 70 year old dad has just been diagnosed with prostate cancer... 3 weeks ago at diagnosis his PSA was 318, he's been on hormone therapy for the past 3 weeks and it's came down to 1.07.... phenomenal!! It's crazy how quickly it's came down! However we're not out the woods just yet, he's had both bone and organ scans done but we're still waiting to hear the results (been told it'll be next week) hes had his biopsy though, 6 cores were taken and all 6 were positive, his Gleason score is 9, and that's all we know so far. She also said that they can't remove it, its aggressive and it's been there for some time.
I guess I'm just wanting to see if that can drop dramically like that in 3 weeks, could it go away completely? The urologist was very pleased with his PSA results so I guess that's a good thing that his system is reacting really well to treatment?! I know we can still get bad news if it's spread but if it hasn't could it be managed?
