Aggressive BRCA Gene Prostate Cancer

Jecca201 profile image

My Dad was diagnosed with metastasized prostate cancer 2020; spread to the bones so far no organs. He’s a VA patient and they are taking good care of him. He started hormone therapy right away. Now, 18 months later, his PSA is on the rise again. He starts chemo next week but they are testing him for BRCA and will change treatment to PARP if he is BRCA positive. I’ve Googled it but I’m finding very little information. I know everyone is different but I’d like to have some ideas of how folks are reacting to their PARP treatment in the event that this becomes his path. Has anyone here caring for someone with it?
