Though guidelines suggest screening starts at 50, researcher says it's premature to change them

my father started zytiga about a year ago. prior to that his psa was pushing 300 and had metastasis to the bones. especially the pelvis area.
fortunately, after radiation, and chemotherapy(taxotir), and a year of zytiga, his psa dropped to 0.5. a blessing.
now the question is whether he should stop using zytiga, for a possible future need or simply continue. these decisions are diifficult to make due to deffering medical opinions. does anyone have a similar situation that can help us make our decision?

Did he have a bone and CT scan recently? What does the oncologist say? I would think that the results of the scans dictate. Probably stay on.
