Well, you are talking about side effects of hormone treatment (physical quality of life), but how patient has to feel himself, when doctor tells him, how many years left to live? Counts how many times he might go on vacation, change his lifestyle (does not make common sense to continue), etc. How he should feel, when he has deadline, literally. Do you think, that will be merciful to do not tell patients that information? Just treat them. It is the worst thing, when people lose the hope. Am I right?
