My dad was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with prostate cancer after a psa of 275.
He has had a bone scan, ct scan and biopsy.
The bone scans have confirmed it has spread to his hip, pelvis, spine and ribs.
Recently found out it has spread to his lung and lymph nodes.
The biopsy results are back on Thursday this week but have stated it is stage 4 and advanced PC.
He was started on hormone treatment last Tuesday and a form of chemo is being started shortly.
My dad is only 57 and had no prior symptoms apart from a sore back and hip.
The news was a complete shock to us all, we are a very close and strong family. In particular my sister and myself are really struggling to come to terms to with this Diagnosis and very scared. Has anyone been through this and have any coping strategies? I want to be as strong as possible for him to help him through this but it is so difficult.
Any help is appreciated.
