Abstract

Treatment of hormone-resistant prostate cancer can be a challenging situation. The first important step in treating this condition is to assess if one has achieved the castrate level or not. If the castrate levels are not achieved, attempt should be made to achieve so. If the castrate level is achieved, then androgen withdrawals may be of help. Supportive care, care of the clinical problems forms an integral part of the treatment. Cancer-specific chemotherapy is certainly an option in progressive disease.

KEYWORDS:

Cancer-specific chemotherapy; castrate levels; hormone-resistant prostate cancer; psycho-oncology; secondary hormonal therapy; supportive care
