This week: Chemotherapy, prostate cancer treatment advances, more

The treatment of prostate cancer has a couple of new options, and urologic oncologist Hanan Goldberg tells about them in this "HealthLink on Air" interview. He describes what's important to know about Orgovyx, an oral androgen deprivation therapy. And, he explains how positron emission tomography, or PET imaging scans, may fit into the treatment plans of some men whose cancer is at risk of spreading.

Also on the show, Timothy Chiang, a pharmacist from the Upstate Cancer Center, explains how chemotherapy developed and has evolved over the decades, as well as how people can prepare for chemotherapy.

And, financial counselor Linda Naples answers some of the most common questions about paying for cancer care.

Listen this Sunday, July 25 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for more.
