Hot Flashes and Prostate Cancer
Posted in the Prostate Cancer Forum
#1 Apr 8, 2012
One of the earliest and most bothersome side effects of androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer is the hot flash. Very similar to those experienced by women during menopause, hot flashes can be debilitating for men receiving medications such as Lupron. Many are too embarrassed by hot flashes to even mention them to their physician. Others dont discuss them because they feel that these hot flashes cannot be treated or prevented. In reality, this could not be further from the truth. In this post, I will describe hot flashes and discuss what causes them. In addition, I will review the most common medications employed to prevent and treat hot flashes experienced by men undergoing androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer.
