Bicalutamide is a generic name of a medication, which is also known as an anti-androgen. Used in the treatment of prostate cancer, Bicalutamide works by blocking the effect of androgens and preventing tumour growth.
Doctors prescribe Bicalutamide with other drugs (called gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists) to treat metastatic (Stage D2) prostate cancer.
Androgens stimulate prostate cancer cells to grow. Bicalutamide works by reducing the levels of androgens in the body, thereby preventing the growth of cancer in the prostate gland.
Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully. It is important to take your dose at the same time everyday. The usual adult dosage is 50mg daily taken orally with water. During the first few months of taking this medication, your liver function may be monitored for signs of changes.
These may not be all the side effects of Bicalutamide 50mg.
Do not use Bicalutamide if you have early phase prostate cancer requiring watchful waiting. This medication should not be given to children or taken by women. If you have a hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients, do not take this medication.
Talk to your doctor about your medical history especially if you have lung disease, heart disease, a low red blood cell count, liver disease or low bone mineral density (BMD).
Store Bicalutamide at room temperature, away from the reach of children.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men, other than skin cancer. Located just below the bladder in men, the prostate gland makes seminal fluid, which is mixed with sperm to make semen. Cells in the prostate sometimes change and no longer grow or behave normally. In some cases, the changes lead to non-cancerous conditions such as prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In other cases, changes in prostate cells can cause prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is usually a slow-growing cancer and may not cause any symptoms in its early stages. As it progresses, symptoms may include increased urinary frequency especially at night, difficulty starting and stopping the flow of urine and painful ejaculation. In order to describe how far a cancer has spread, a staging system is used by the health care professionals. Generally, the staging system used for prostate cancer is the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) TNM system. The T category describes the extent of the tumour. The N category tells whether the lymph nodes are involved. The M category describes whether the cancer has metastasized to other parts of the body. The PSA level and the Gleason score are also included in the TNM system.
