In November 2016 my dad who is 74 years old was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer Gleeson 9. It has spread into his chest. The dad is an active man and has no other health problems.
He started hormone therapy and then a course of chemotherapy - 6 sessions. My dad has continued on his hormone therapy since diagnosis and then approximately 5 months ago his PSA started to rise and he was prescribed Abiraterone. He has been on this treatment for 3 months and his PSA has continued to rise slightly. It is currently 27.
If his PSA continues to rise at his next consultant meeting, I believe he will recommend stopping the treatment. Has anyone experienced using abiraterone not working for them? What other treatment options are available after this treatment?
