Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer


Management of Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer

If you have been diagnosed with castration-resistant prostate cancer, your doctor will recommend a care pathway to manage your symptoms and allow you to live longer. It is important to remember that castration-resistant prostate cancer cannot be cured.

Castration-resistant prostate cancer can be managed with:

  • Anti-androgen therapy
  • Oestrogen therapy
  • Adrenolytic agents
  • New hormonal agents
  • Immunotherapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy

Because castration-resistant prostate cancer still responds to androgens, your doctor will recommend to continue hormonal treatment to keep the levels of testosterone low.
