Re: Timing of Cancer Reoccurence after Surgery

I didn't realize that renegade/escaped prostate cancer cells may hide in bone niches. I'm not really sure what a bone niche is. I just thought that the prostate flushed out microscopic cancer cells that floated around in the bloodstream looking to cause trouble and sometimes were successful. Very tricky disease whatever the case. Thanks FRank. Good input.

Re: Timing of Cancer Reoccurence after Surgery

G'day bobbyboy,

Further to your surgeon's comment about testosterone therapy, you will be interested in an article by Robert Coward and Culley Carson. Google the title "Testosterone replacement therapy after prostate cancer" and it will come up as the first search result.

The gist of the article is that testosterone therapy after prostate cancer treatment may be safer than previously thought.

All the best from Brian in Australia.

Re: Timing of Cancer Reoccurence after Surgery

Thanks Brian. I'll read that article. Yes, my Urologist had a look of horror on his face when I asked about it.
