Over 6‘000 men in Switzerland develop prostate cancer each year. This makes it the most common form of cancer. Therapy approaches such as surgery, radiation, hormonal treatment or chemotherapy depend on the extent to which the tumour has spread and how aggressively it is growing.
Some patients undergoing cytostatic chemotherapy may experience severe nausea and vomiting. Preventive treatment with an antiemetic may reduce or even prevent these unpleasant side-effects.
