May be...: After a successful rt for prostate cancer (pca), the patient will still require a lifelong f/u for possible rising psa after definitive rx; it's reasonable to do so every 6 months for the described one by repeating psa and with clinical assessment. Solar plexus pain is very unlikely related with pca. Instead, consider hypertension-related or idiopathic. Pca-related pain occurs in its late stage.

Prostate CA staging: Stage III means the cancer has spread out of the capsule or into the seminal vesicles, the glands that sit right on top of the prostate. Treatment would consist of anti androgen therapy, a shot, and radiation. There is always the chance the cancer could spread so a bone scan and CT is done to check and to also use as a baseline for the future.
