How do men with prostate cancer get chemotherapy?

ANSWER

Generally, men with prostate cancer get chemotherapy drugs by IV (directly into the vein) or by mouth. Once the drugs are absorbed, they enter the bloodstream and travel to virtually all parts of the body to reach cancer cells that may have spread beyond the prostate.
