Now, how does one go out and find what the market size is for this particular drug...

Use your favorite search engine. In this case, type in 'prostate cancer' and scroll through postings from legitimate sources until you find out what you want.

I just did so and learned that in 1990 there were 22.7 new cases per 100,000 men (it dramatically increases after age 67 or so). This amounts to over 30,000 potential new U.S. customers per year, besides those previously diagnosed. And then there is the world market to consider.

There is definitely a market for this drug.
