Prostate cancer treatment in men over 80


Recommended Posts

In this weeks video, the first in a series on the topic of elderly men, Dr Snuffy Myers deals with prostate cancer in the over 80s.

His approach is:

  • do everything he can not to use hormone therapy;
  • never use the triple hormone therapy in the elderly - a disaster he says; and
  • if he must treat, use minimal Casodex + Avodart, or transdermal estradiol.

He also tells that:

  • he strongly disapproves with treatment with DES;
  • falls are a major problem for men of this age; and
  • he had a surprisingly small number of reported deaths among his patients in 2010.
