Treatment Responses: With Metastatic Prostate treated with chemotherapy (Hormonal treatment, Taxotere, etc) this is the usual response seen (partial response). It is rare that they will disappear all together (complete response). These treatment are well documented to make these men live longer then with no treatment or the older chemotherapies. The doctor can discuss with you what to expect with each new treatment.
