    Chemotherapy is effective for some men with advanced prostate cancer who didn’t do well on hormone therapy. When the hormonal treatments stop working, the drugs Zytiga (abiraterone) or Xtandi (enzalutamide) have proven effective.

    The goal of prostate cancer treatment is long-term survival, and that is likelier in men diagnosed with early prostate cancer. All prostate cancer survivors should be examined regularly and have their PSA and testosterone levels monitored closely.
