Answer

Answer

Enrollment in clinical trial is preferred

Observation is acceptable

Secondary hormone therapy can be considered for patients with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) doubling < 10 months; anti-androgen therapy is acceptable for patients who previously received medical or surgical castration, ketoconazole, corticosteroids, diethylstilbestrol or other estrogens
