Abstract To assess patient rationale in selecting androgen deprivation, structured telephone interviews were conducted on consecutive patients on androgen deprivation over a 17-year period. The majority of these patients have stable disease that require long-term follow-up with 6-monthly PSA estimations. Synchronous PSA check with depot injections are preferred by majority of patients and longer intervals between the depot administrations are preferable due to perceived less needle pain. This study highlights for the first time patients' preferences for synchronous PSA check with their depot injections and a longer interval between the depot administrations due to perceived less needle pain.
