When Prostate Cancer Becomes Metastatic


Most of the time, prostate cancer is discovered and it is only found in the prostate gland.  However, when the term metastatic is used, it means such tumor has been spread out to other parts of the body such as the bones and other organs.  This could causes pain and other symptoms.  In this CancerCare.org article, The way doctors determine if your prostate cancer is metastatic is through various methods such as x-rays of the bone, CT scans of the abdomen, or MRI scans. At times, cancer cells may not be detected in the bones or other organs, but are considered “micrometastatic” because cancer cells are believed to be in the bloodstream.  No matter the case, it is important to discuss everything openly with your doctors and support team to give the best chance in this fight against the disease.
