Question: What are the symptoms of hot flashes in men receiving hormone treatment for prostate cancer?

Answer: The symptoms of hot flashes in men receiving hormone treatment for prostate cancer are similar to the symptoms that women get when they have hot flashes around the change of their life: a warm sensation, oftentimes starting in the upper body/chest, oftentimes going up to the head and neck area. Symptoms can be quite mild, last for 30 seconds or so. Symptoms can be quite severe, where the person can drop into a complete, drenching sweat and that can require them to remove clothes or even to the point where they want to take a shower.
