Ductal Adenocarcinoma Prostate Cancer

I’m seeking information on DAC treatment post radical prostatectomy?

  1. Hi . Sorry to hear about the ductal adenocarcinoma diagnosis. I'm going to be straightforward and note that it is rare and often considered more aggressive and difficult to treat. That said, I found this research found "data suggest a favorable prognosis comparable to that of pure acinar adenocarcinoma:" https://www.redjournal.org/article/S0360-3016(17)32327-1/fulltext. It appears many of the treatments are the same, although a key may be in finding any spread, as the ductal cancer is known to go to different, obscure areas. The new PSMA test locates prostate cancer at levels never before possible and should help dramatically (see: https://journals.lww.com/nuclearmed/Abstract/2021/11000/Ductal_Variant_of_Prostate_Cancer__Serial_Imaging.29.aspx). Your doctor should be able to provide additional information on this. I did find this article on docetaxel chemotherapy, which is condition specific: https://www.karger.com/Article/Fulltext/438785. I hope this information proves useful and please feel free to keep us posted on how things are going. Best, Richard (ProstateCancer.net Team)
