Depends....: Usually a CT is done to see if there is localized spread of prostate cancer and a Bone Scan is done to see if there is wider spread. Treatment depends on spread or lack of spread, generalized life expectancy and rate of growth and, most importantly, your father's wishes. http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/treatment/prostate/Patient/page2
