Stramustine Medication Information

Drug Information: Prostate cancer is a cancer that develops in the cells of the prostate gland. In some men with prostate cancer, the cancer cells migrate to other parts of the body and are called advanced prostate cancer. Treatment options for this type of cancer usually include chemotherapy (anti-cancer drugs).
