Abstract

Between 1977 and 1986, 11 patients with painful gynecomastia after DES therapy were referred for palliative radiotherapy. The treatment regimens varied from 20 Gy in 5 fractions to 40 Gy in 20 fractions. All 11 patients had satisfactory pain relief on follow-up. All 7 patients who had more than 6 months follow-up had complete relief of mammalgia. The average interval between completion of radiotherapy to complete relief of mammalgia was 3.6 months. This study revealed that radiotherapy is highly effective in palliating mammalgia associated with gynecomasytia after DES therapy in prostate cancer patients.
