I was told on 2.8.12 that my biopsy revealed Prostate Cancer. My Gleason score was 3-3. The Urologist gave me 4 options. 1. Watch and Wait. 2. Radiation. 3. Robotic Surgery. 4. Seeds. I've read so much I'm confused, let along shocked with my diagnosis. Would appreciate any helpful feedback anyone can provide.
Thanks so much for your reply! In December 2009 my PSA was 3.9, in December 2010 it was 4.1, and in December 2011 it was 4.8. I'm not sure of what stage I'm in, I'll call my Dr. first thing Monday to get that info plus a copy of the pathology report. Again, thanks so much!View Thread
I'm 59, in excellent health walking 3.25 miles EVERY day, my latest PSA results were 4.8. I don't remember the Doctor telling me what the percentage of cancer was found, but I'll find out. I believe 13 samples were taken. First thing on Monday I'll get a copy of the pathology report. Thanks for replying!View Thread
