Systemic Therapies for Metastatic Pca cancer

Most of are out of the woods after our initial primary treatments which has an almost "8 years remission  period". We just monitor our PSA on a scheduled programme as prescribed by our Oncologist. The 8 years honeymoon period is a given, to all who had done the primary treatments after scanning positive. Yes eventually there will  be a rise in the PSA, some faster than others. And rise it will until we reach the next PCa biomarker, when our Oncologist will propose the next round of treatments. Systemic therapies are the buzz words today. All is not lost, just another round of treatments with new drugs and with better efficacies, precision and focus.
