Prostate Cancer Treatment

Prostate cancer is somewhat common as far as cancers go, however it goes largely unnoticed, particularly outside of North America. There are several symptoms associated with prostate cancer including urination difficulty, pain, and erectile dysfuntion. Many however do not experience any symptoms and often die of other unrelated causes. Those with prostate cancer may never know that they actually have it. This is because many do not have any symptoms, are never treated for prostate cancer, and die of other causes, often old age. Also, most times prostate cancer is very slow growing and often only appears in men over 50 years of age. Thus, someone who develops prostate cancer late in life may die never knowing they had prostate cancer.

Detection of prostate cancer is usually via a blood test which shows elevated levels of PSA (prostate-specific antigen). Elevated PSA has a positive predictive value of around 35% and is therefore not a definitive test for prostate cancer. It should be noted that low levels of PSA are present in the serum of men without prostate cancer. There are many reported cases of more aggressive prostate cancers. About one third of prostate cancer cases are fast spreading. Such aggressive cells can metastasize and spread to other parts of the body.

Treating Prostate Cancer

Treating prostate cancer is somewhat similar to treating other forms of cancer. The age of the patient and his over all health and wellness must be taken into consideration. Treatments include:

  • Surgery
  • Proton Therapy
  • Hormonal Therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation Therapy

Some therapies can take a heavy toll on the patient suffering from prostate cancer. The patient trade-off between quality of life and the discomfort of the therapy must be considered. Senior patients are often advised against treatment and may even not get a biopsy to have the tissues examined.

Using DCA (Sodium Dichloroacetate) to Treat Prostate Cancer

DCA has been used for years to treat a variety of conditions, most notably lactic acidosis. In 2007 researchers at the University of Alberta treated cancer with DCA and had incredible success. Their press release videos are here. They found a 70% reduction in cancerous tumors in just 3 weeks. They did not use DCA to treat prostate cancer. Their initial trials involved brain cancer patients. However, the same underlying mechanism is believed to be responsible for all cancers so there is a very good chance that DCA will be just as effective at treating prostate cancer as it was with other forms of cancer.

Medical paper explains how DCA makes prostate cancer cells vulnerable to radiation and has a positive influence on mitochondria, causing apoptosis.

    I WAS DIAGNOSED W/ PROSTATE CANCER IN DEC./2012. AFTER CONSULTATION W/ MY UROLOGIST TO OBSREVE IT FOR A YEAR, I STARTED USING D.C.A. 50% STRENGTH FOR 2 MONTHS AND 25% FOR 4 MONTHS. IN DEC./2013 THE BIOPSY REVEALED A WHOPPING 66% REDUCTION IN CANCER CELLS.IF I WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE FULL STENGTH;I AM SURE THAT I WOULD HAVE BEEN CURED. I HAVE NOW STARTED A 20MG/KG STRENGTH.I AM ANXIOUS TO SEE WHAT THE RESUTS WILL BE. THANK YOU. WAYNE

    I have been on the new protocol you reccommended 20mg/kg/dy no stoppage for 2 weeks along with thaimin 750 mg. Here it is: Starting results: PSA 210 PAP 220
    2 weeks into DCA PSA 280 PAP 250 Thought I might see a slight decrease. Any reason behind increase. Will continue treatment and repeat blood in 2 weeks 2/27/12 Hope for the best. Do feel great. Golf game is real good. Humor
    Thanks Jay

      I have a PSA recurrence after surgery. I have been using Pomegranate, soy, tomato paste and broccoli or califlour. Supplementing with melatonin 9mg/eve and 300mg resveratrol. 500mg vitamin C without fatty foods at time of C dosing. I am adding the baking soda next.
      The smart chart at http://www.pcref.org/MedSmartChart/multi_reg_f.php helps me keep track.
      The PSA 210 PAP 220 was starting 2-6-12? The neurological side effects of DCA concern me.
      When my psa gets high, I will consider Degarelix or another hormone blockade; then when that stops working I’ll get in a vaccine trial or add aberaterone acetate or Ketoconazole.

        I would suggest you take dca and thiamin as soon as possible – there is no neurological side effects when you add vitamin B1 (thiamin) to your protocol. We have been treating all cancers, in all stages, with dca since 2007 and when we add thiamin (vitamin B1) there are no neurological side effects (neuropathy).

    July 09 diagnosed with stage 4 pca. Had chemo-radioaction-provenge. My psa values were always low 2.0 till 2/11 they started to rise quickly by 9/11 psa was 220. Started DCA 1/16/12 30mg/kg then increased to 40mg/kg 5 days on 2 off
    just did blood work PAP 220 to 148 nice but PSA 220 to 250 confusing. Will start DCA 2/6/12 40mg/kg 5 days then 50mg/kg 5 days redue PSA/PAP ?????

      The dosage you are using of dca is not what we would recommend. We
      recommend a DAILY dosage of dca of 20mg per kilogram with no stoppages in
      the treatment protocol AND a supplement of thiamin of 750mg per day so the
      dca works more efficiently. We recommmend you split the dosage of dca and
      thiamin in half and take 12 hours apart with food. I think you will see
      your numbers improve with this protocol.
