Singaporean diagnosed with advance prostate cancer

Hi, newbie here. Just wondering if anybody is from Singapore here and is also diagnosed with prostate cancer?

My dad was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in dec 2015 with a PSA of 300+ and had spread to the bone. He was undergoing hormone therapy when the PSA starts rising 2 months ago. Now he has changed his medicine. Hopefully this month we will have some good news.

However, my dad is starting to feel some numbness on his left arm. Was wondering if the cancer spreads to the spinal cord. Would it be very worse?

Any advice?
