pathophysiology case scenario question
A 72-year-old man has a radical prostatectomy for localized prostate cancer. After surgery his PSA level was undetectable. He presents 5 years later having been “lost to follow up.” He complains of pain in his hip and lower back. His PSA level is now markedly elevated.
- What initial investigations are warranted?
- What therapies are available for this complication?
I would appreciate any help with this question! Thanks!!
