    Navigating Systemic Misinformation. I was a very healthy and active young man, not predisposed to prostate cancer and not in a high-risk category due to family histories or old age, but indeed came to have prostate cancer.   Will compare OS in metastatic prostate cancer patients who received standard systemic therapy (SST) plus surgical excision of the primary tumor versus SST alone in the .

    Patients must not have received any prior systemic therapy for prostate cancer, outside of line of SST to be used for duration of study. Patients must not have progressed while on SST. . Chemotherapy is usually a systemic treatment, which means that the drugs enter the bloodstream, travel through the body, and can kill cancer cells anywhere in the body, including the prostate. It’s important to note that PSA levels decrease after the prostate .

    The systemic treatment of prostate cancer has evolved to feature interference with androgen signaling that fuels malignant cancer cell growth and progression, the possible early use of taxane chemotherapy, the availability of bone-targeted agents that reduce skeletal complications of metastatic disease and its treatment. Systemic therapy involves treatment that travels through your entire body rather than being aimed at one area. Systemic radiation therapy uses radioactive drugs (called radiopharmaceuticals or radionuclides) to treat certain types of cancer, including thyroid, bone, and prostate cancer.
