Every November, The Movember Foundation, the only global charity solely focused on men’s health, challenges men to grow a mustache to spark conversations and raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues.

Important Developments for Advanced Prostate Cancer

  • Advanced Prostate Cancer treatment

Here are some important developments, surrounding treatment options for advanced prostate cancer, that we are keeping a watchful eye on. A new androgen receptor inhibitor drug, darolutamide, may soon be a treatment option for patients with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC). Non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer is a clinical state in which men who are being treated with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) see their PSA levels begin to rise (indicating the cancer has become resistant to ADT and is starting to grow again), but no metastases are visible yet on scans.

Only men have a prostate gland. This walnut-shaped gland sits below the bladder. The prostate surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of your body.
