Re: Another worried daughter needs help...Dad has Stage 4 PC.

Hello kcon,

Thanks a lot for your reply.
Well we never had his PSA checked earlier as PC used to be quite uncommon in India few years back. Although the number of cases are growing now. Also, he had no symptoms other than bone pain that we though is because of arthritis, as he has a family history of the same.
We did take him to a GP for his bone pain last year who said it is arthritis and gave my dad some pain killers. But more or less, I, as a daughter blame myself for letting his PC grow.
Doctors say his PC is chronic, so does that mean we have some hope?

Thanks and regards
