My PSA is 22 and my Dr. wants to start me on Luprin. I am 84 years of age. What is your recomendation?

Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly

Sorry to hear about that. Yes in advanced prostate cancer Lupron is a good choice . It is a GnRH analogue and suppresses LH & FSH which leads to low testosterone production and hence reduced prostate growth.

Hope it helped.
