Small but definite -: Chance with your hx of prostate cancer. See your orthopod to get investigated. I am sure your oncologist must be following you if its only been 2 yrs since you had radiation. I am sure he (she) can also tell you. Prostate cancers are generally amenable to radiation treatments and pts do very well. So check with your rad, oncologist ; an orthopod, as early DX means early treatment. Good luck.

Neither Zoledronate nor denosumab are approved for prostate cancer that has not progressed on the initial hormonal therapy. I would recommend reviewing with the physician the risks and benefits of doing so. In general, I would wait until the PSA starts to progress. And decrease exposure to these drugs that can have side effects.
