radiation and prostate cancer

My father-in-law was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer that has developed a tumor outside of his bladder. He had radiation 20 years ago and the Dr. said he can't have any more radiation for this. I don't understand why. He was told to go home and die. Not acceptable. Can anyone tell me why he can't have any more radiation to shrink this tumor?

Hi happyna2five, - If he is not being managed by a Medical Oncologist, I suggest he see one, as soon as possible, preferably one experienced in treating Prostate Cancer, (PCa) That is the specialty that is best equipped to deal with advanced PCa. Good luck. - John@newPCa.org (aka) az4peaks
