Life-Prolonging Treatments for Advanced Prostate Cancer - Maha Hussain

Maha Hussain joins Alicia Morgans and reflects on the journey she has traveled from 1983 when prostate cancer was viewed as a disease exclusive to older men, where there were no real biomarkers and a lack of understanding for the spectrum of the disease.   Maha delivers one of the pivotal talks at the PCF 25th Annual retreat and here we gain her perspective on the evolving landscape of life-prolonging treatments for advanced disease in men with prostate cancer.
