Dr. Geo Espinosa, ND, LAc, IFMCP, CNS, clinical assistant professor of integrative and functional urology at New York University and author of Thrive—Don’t Survive: Dr. Geo’s Guide to Living Your Best Life Before & After Prostate Cancer, discusses treating prostate cancer with chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is not the most common treatment for prostate cancer, though it is used more often in advanced cases. As most cases of this cancer are low or intermediate grade, other treatments are more effective than chemo, even in cases where the cancer has metastasized beyond the prostate. Doctors and patients should work together to create a treatment regimen that is appropriate for the patient. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the treatments your doctor proposes.
