My father, aged 78, was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. His PSA score rose from 4 to 50+ in the span of a year and when they did the biopsy, they found 10 Gleason scores in every portion of his prostate except two.
The CT scan came back negative for spread into his lymph nodes, but the bone scan showed several suspicious areas. He was supposed to get an MRI to confirm the suspicious bone areas, but due to his pacemaker, they are having him do another CT scan.
My question is whether we should find an oncologist for a 2nd opinion and treatment.
I get conflicting answers when I search in google. Some sites say that prostate cancer should be treated by an oncologist, but some other websites seem to indicate it’s urologists that treat prostate cancer.
