      @rlfuller7,
      Hello, I'm an oncology nurse and I'm here to help with any questions you might have regarding your disease. It is important to know a few facts about prostate cancer. Most men with this diagnosis live to their life expectancy. This is a slow growing cancer. With other cancers you can go into remission and then have recurrence and only be given 13 months at best for a prognosis. With prostate cancer you can be stage 4, go into remission, then get recurrence and your prognosis would be 13 years...that would be the year 2031. By then could you imagine how many new drugs would have come onto the market. I'm here if you have any questions on treatment options, or anything you seek an answer to. Best of luck to you.
