I am a cancer doctor.

is your prostate cancer confined to your prostate or has it spread elsehwhere in your body?

did you have surgery or radiation therapy directed at your prostate gland for prostate cancer ?

what is your LDL and total cholesterol levels? usually lupron therapy doesn't cause these to rise up.
