is there a link with prostate cancer and bladder cancer . my understanding was that if pc spread it would be to the bone . my father had his removed last year and his psa is at o after radiation but he was admitted to hospital on thursday because of a lot of blood in his urine and he has been feeling unwell for some time . they have done a lot of test on him and he gets his results today .fingers crossed he is fine . he did suffer with kidney stones over the years but this time he has no pain with his symptoms and this is why i am worried .
ps. i lve in dublin and would like to know if anyone on the site is from here so we could share information on doctors ect.

Check out information you can read right now on urological conditions that include bladder cancer, etc.:

PCa is unique: it has been found in other tissues besides bones and can travel literally anywhere in the body and always still is PCa and not lung or where it is found, a super rare scenario has just been documented by oncologists from the 2006-PCRI conference whereby a patient has been found with PCa in the brain, not seen before by the way, and they have more details about it in the conference video. Now that is a new and bizarre one in the PCa world.

Look at the urology sites he could be dealing with various types of issues.

Well now,
That is a blessing indeed...Happy St. Patricks's day early, too, to you and 6071.

Great news, petal,

zufuz has already nailed it, PCa can spread anywhere. I do have a friend (originally from across the strait in Lodon) living here in Las Vegas that has had both cancers. He is doing well, also...

PS: It's good news it's not cancer, but yikes, sorry for the stones...
