|Official Title:||A Feasibility Study of Oral Hormonal Therapy and Radiation for Non-metastatic, Intermediate or High Risk Prostate Cancer in Men 70 and Older or With Medical Comorbidities|
- Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Health-related quality of life will be summarized using a score reflecting patient reported symptoms in sexual, hormone/vitality, fatigue, and overall quality of life.
- Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Increase in prostate specific antigen (PSA)measured over time.

Experimental: Oral Androgen Therapy
Subjects will receive two oral hormonal drugs (bicalutamide with dutasteride or bicalutamide with finasteride)
Bicalutamide 50 mg orally daily with either dutasteride or finasteride for 2 months. After two months of treatment bicalutamide with either dutasteride or finasteride will be taken along with radiation. After completion of radiation, bicalutamide will be stopped.
Other Name: CasodexDrug: Dutasteride
Dutasteride 0.5 mg orally will be taken daily with bicalutamide for 2 months. After two months of treatment dutasteride and bicalutamide will be taken along with radiation. After completion of radiation, dutasteride will be taken alone for two years.
Other Names:Drug: Finasteride
Finasteride 5 mg orally will be taken daily with bicalutamide for 2 months. After two months of treatment finasteride and bicalutamide will be taken along with radiation. After completion of radiation, finasteride will be taken alone for two years.
Other Names:Radiation: Radiation
7-8 weeks of radiation with bicalutamide and either dutasteride or finasteride.
