Hi @toyofan1, welcome. Can you please clarify? Do you have prostate cancer that has spread to the temporal bone on the left side of the skull?

I was told it spread to my left temporal lobe. I am on my way to the Mayo this morning to meet with a neurologist.
Toyofan, what did you learn from the neurologist, if you don't mind my asking? What are the next steps?
My brother had his prostrate cancer spread to cerebellum and to the parietal lobe. He was diagnosed in 2018 with prostrate cancer with PSA readings between 65 and 85. After HDT, EBRT and brachytherapy he started having balance issues. On further analysis the brain metastasis was discovered. He underwent surgery for the cerebellum cancer and radiation for the parietal metastasis. As of today he is feeling a little better and has begun to gain back weight he lost.
That's good news, Jim, that your brother is feeling better. Is he receiving palliative care?
