My dad whos 82yrs has just been diagnosed with small cell prostate cancer after many tests. He has been offered chemo but told its very tough. It has been left for him to.make a decision if he has the chemo or not.

Theres not loads of info about small cell.cancer, all ii can see is that its very aggressive. Has anyone any experience of this and has anyone not had treatment or had treatment that can give us an idea of whats to come.


  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    It's always difficult when the consultant gives you a choice of whether to have treatment or not.

    The online community is divided into different support forums so I'm going to recommend that you join the prostate cancer forum which is a great place to ask your question, share experiences and get support.

    To join just click on the link I've created and, once you've joined, you can start a new post there in the same way as you did here and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.

    It would be great if you could put something about your dad's diagnosis and proposed treatment into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
