how can having both hepatitis c and prostate cancer limit your survival rate?
Apr 22, 2012

i know someone who has been diagnosed with both of these and he has given up on even attempting to find a cure. he wont say how far along they are just that he found out six months ago at a doctors appt. if you could email me back at my email adress i would most appreciate this. i dont know who to ask and im really scared. thank you.

Response from Dr. McGovern

There are great treatments for hepatitis C and the promise of new drugs just continues to expand. The news from the European meetings for liver disease this week has been stunning. Great drugs - great rates of cure.

I can't comment on his prostate cancer because I am not an oncologist, but there are good treatments for this as well and everything depends on staging.
