After 25 years of BPH I was MRI diagnosed with 3+4 PCa in 2015. Post Open RP I was staggered to discover a possible link between my 12 months of Dutasteride treatment in 2013/14 and serious PCa. My subsequent enquiries were unable to confirm definite involvement but I still regret this treatment that was at best unneeded and without BPH benefit. The gland failed to achieve it's suggested 20% size reduction. My research led to suggestions PMR may be linked to PCa or its surgery. The cause of PMR is unknown but there may be some link to some cases. Does any post-RP or post RARP survivors here have subsequent PMR issues? PMR and its treatment involves the immune system which is our natural cancer combatant. PMR treatment involves suppression of the immune responses which may not be in our best interests since we are told we have to assume we still have PCa cells in our bodies waiting to declare themselves. Any thoughts??
