An example case from the 'Metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer' module.

Paul, 72 years old, was diagnosed with CRPC 15 month ago, (4 years after being diagnosed with localised intermediate-risk PCa that was treated by radical prostatectomy). Bone scan showed he had metastatic disease to the spine and the hip. He received 6 cycles docetaxel to which he responded well.

Today, imaging revealed lung metastases; Paul is suffering from fatigue and has considerable pain. Therefore, he had to stop working at the local library, which he did as a volunteer every Wednesday afternoon. Most of the time, he is not confined to a chair or his bed, but work activities have become too much.

Which treatment would you recommend?
