    Detailed data is missing


    I am sorry for the diagnosis of your “old” man. Without more data on his status we cannot advice you or share opinions with you. The best would be to encourage him to come to this forum and discuss with us about his concerns.

    Do you know his PSA level?
    Does he have any symptoms?
    How old is he?
    What make him to visit the doctor who told him of the cancer?

    Prostate cancer is usually slow growing allowing the patient time to treat it properly. These kind of treatments also allows patients to lead normal lives so that he may continue to help you as usual. It all depends on how advanced the case is.

    You can also get help from a local support group. You may find their address close to you in this link; States

    Maybe your old man wants to visit them or contact by mail or phone.

    Best wishes and luck in his journey.
