Prostate Cancer


I’m currently 100% for Prostate cancer. I received 28 radiation treatments. I’m now on hormone shots for 2 years. Is this considered part of my treatment, and will I continue on 100% till I complete the hormone treatment?

The hormone treatment is 'treatment' and while you're being treated your rating should remain at 100%. However, this is an arena where VA makes a lot of mistakes so be prepared to appeal if they drop the rating prematurely. Good luck.
