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

My Father is diagnosed with metastatic Prostate cancer. It's spread to his lymphnodes & bones. He was an otherwise active & healthy 87-year old until swelling in his leg & groin about 9-months ago. His recent PSA test count was about 1,000 (irregularly high). He's decided against Xtandi injection treatments due to $8,500/each cost & lost quality of life in the time he has left.
Can someone project what his life expectancy might be given these conditions? Please be straight-forward, I need to know. Thanks.
