Is PROVENGE Right For Me?
PROVENGE is a treatment option for certain men with metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer.
You may be able to receive PROVENGE therapy if:
- You are on hormone therapy and have rising PSA levels
- Your cancer has spread from the prostate to other places, such as your bones
- You are not taking narcotics for cancer-related pain
Ask your doctor if PROVENGE is right for you.
When is the right time for PROVENGE?
Since PROVENGE is an immunotherapy that boosts your immune system, it should be used early on in your advanced prostate cancer treatment plan.
In fact, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines recommend using PROVENGE first, and it is the only immunotherapy treatment option for men with advanced prostate cancer with few or no cancer-related symptoms. PROVENGE boosts your immune system to help it fight your advanced prostate cancer.
After your PROVENGE treatment, other options such as radiotherapy, hormone therapy, and chemotherapy may still be available to you.
