Stage IV Prostate Cancer

Treatment of stage IV prostate cancer may include the following:

  • Hormone therapy.
  • External-beam radiation therapy with or without hormone therapy.
  • Radiation therapy or transurethral resection of the prostate as palliative therapy to relieve symptoms caused by the cancer.
  • Watchful waiting or active surveillance.
  • A clinical trial of radical prostatectomy with orchiectomy.

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with stage IV prostate cancer. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.
