Sat, Jul 18 4:07pm · Breast enlargement in men due to hormone therapy. in Prostate Cancer

Philnob,

Have not heard of liposuction as a treatment. Seems it might make sense if everything checks out. Recommend researching it quite a bit.

Hello. Yes, I have same side effect. Do search: "Drugs that can cause gynecomastia"; drugsdb.com; Rhona Finkel.
Some hope: 50% men will develop this; nbr. of studies: this will eventually resolve on it's own in time in up to 80% of cases.

All the best…

Michael T, Strongly rec: 2nd opinion and evaluation radiation and surgery. Our med backgrounds very similar,except I am 77 and that may be tie-brkr. Mayo's radiation was 20 sessions + hormone for Gleason of 8/cancer all in prostate. Terrific program, manageable side effects; rad. 4/19; wonderful staff/support. Rec/Dr. Pisansky and staff!
All the best,

Yes, 2-months ago quickly gained 11 pounds in one month and not just from holidays! Trying to shed them and work out 30 minutes each day. Was told to expect gaining around the gut. Watch my food, but need new approach. All the best…OUMike

Sep 6, 2019 · Had a biopsy done recently - they want to do another one! in Prostate Cancer

Wizard59: Hello. I completed 20 radiation treatments 5/2019 at Mayo Clinic and now on 18-months of Lupron. Had the biopsy elsewhere while sedated with no difficulties. The biopsy told the story of a definite need for treatment. Recommend considering getting a second opinion how all of your treatment and care is going with a focus on the need for a second biopsy. All the best to you in your search for the right path for care.
