Severe swelling of the right leg
Surgeon-phlebologist-lymphologist, surgeon of the first category
Hello, Elena Olegovna. My father had serious health problems. He was diagnosed with a severe cancer. Namely: malignant neoplasm of the prostate, metostases, retroperitoneal lymph nodes and inguinal lymph nodes on both sides.
Now all this was complicated by the edema of the right leg. A leg or foot and strong pains strongly disturb him, therefore also I address to you for the help.
Tell me, please, where (maybe in Russia and abroad) and how can they help him?
The following treatment was carried out: 1. Hormonotherapy from June 2008 (Zalodex and Casodex), 2. Radiation therapy (from December 2008 to February 2009).
Thank you in advance.

Treatment should be conducted under the guidance ofoncologist at the place of residence. If necessary, he can attract a vascular surgeon for advice, but, in the overwhelming majority of cases, the competence of an oncologist is sufficient.
Sincerely, Elena Belyanina.
