I’m new here, my father was diagnosed on 1 May 24 with prostate cancer.

We are awaiting bone scan and a biopsy however a prostate MRI shows suspicious lymph node, seminal vessel spread, pushing against the bladder wall and several bone lesions in pelvis. 

Looking for anyone that is in a similar situation that can share their story of hope for us.

He started Bicalutamide 50g on 1st May and has his first hormone injection today. 

Any advice you can give would be so appreciated xx
