Lymph node treatment after C11 or Fereheme imaging

Would like understand if anyone has experience with being treated for solely for suspicious lymph nodes with therapy other than ADT? What Therapy, any side effects & outcome?

Some would consider this treatment of Oligometastatic disease.

Thanks!

GI80

Oligometastatic cancer refers to a few numbers of metastatic colonies (of cancer) that may exist localized or in far places. It does not refer only to metastatic cancer at the lymph nodes.
The treatment therefore will be done with the best “at hand” for the place where the spots were found. Surgery, radiation and chemo may eliminate the metastases. Hormonal treatment may control any advancement by killing some dependable cells or turning them to become more “docile” (indolent).
Surely, surgery may not be wise if the cancer exist in restrictive places such as in bone, but lymph nodes could be disected or radiated. Focal RT seems to be the method of preference.

I would recommend you to discuss the matter with your doctor.

Thanks. I have talked to many doctors and this is controversial to say the least. It makes senses to me but few treat PCa this way. There is very little documented in scientific journals for men get treated for PCa in this manner. Newsletter type articles don't count as science IMHO. Only thing I have found credible is work done at Mayo with Dr. Kwon. That is why I am looking for men who have had radiation based on suspicious lymphatic nodes.
