Though it is challenging, the medical community continues to discover ways to target different type of cancer. When a cancer becomes a metastatic disease, the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. It is important to note that the cancer in the other organs from a metastasis of prostate cancer is still considered metastatic prostate cancer, and not cancer of the other organ such as lung, liver, etc. according to the National Cancer Institute. Recently, CancerCare.org held a workshop in which options such as hormonal therapy to lower testosterone, which is fuel for prostate cancer to grow. Another option the speakers discussed was the introduction of new drugs and treatments where after Chemotherapy and hormonal treatments have failed, can still combat the disease with success. Although there is a mandate from the Federal Drug Administration on such new drugs and treatments about them being an option only after conventional treatments have failed, but doctors and those in the medical communities are encouraged by the results and are pushing to have permission to introduce the new drugs earlier.
