I’m trying to do some research for my father in law who is 75. He recently moved to the US and his insurance provider had him do a PSA test which came back at 467. He had his prostate removed 12 years ago.
I would rate his health and his activity as excellent. Always moving very active. Very engaged with life and family
The scans show that he has some cancer in his Pelvis and his chest. Stage IV
Doctor has told him to proceed with horemone therapy and chemo immediately. He doesn’t really want to do the treatment as he feels great and is concerned about how this might impact his quality of life
I guess the million dollar question is what are the risks by him not doing any treatment. What can we do to help determine if treatment is worth it? The cancer obviously didn’t show up overnight.
I appreciate any feedback.
