Just had another chat with clinical nurse as I don't feel that the treatment is aggressive enough for my husband's PC (GS9, PSA 167 with spread to pelvic lymph nodes). Treatment plan is radiotherapy with HT.
She said that the only concern which no one can tell you even with localises low grade tumours is micro mets but they have to treat what they can see.
What I don't understand and forgot to ask is if there are micro mets why do you not add chemo as well? Presumably if they're that small that a scan can't pick it up chemo would kill those cells too
