Abstract

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in Poland. The choice of treatment method depends on many factors, including the stage of the disease, the patient's age, life expectancy, the presence of comorbidities and the general condition of the patient. Hormone therapy is one of the basic methods of prostate cancer treatment, both in adjuvant and palliative treatment. Castration-resistant prostate cancer is an incurable disease. However, the introduction of new hormonal drugs to therapy significantly extended the survival time of patients with relatively low harmfulness of therapy.
