Gleason 8 psa 4
After a rising PSA my uroligist suggested a biopsy. He took 8 samples. 2 came back positive in one area. GS 4=4 8 PTI %40 and GS 4+4 8 PTI %5
My PSA is 4.1 He could not detect tumor by rectal exam or with scope so the PSA helped here.
we spent about an hour discussing options and he was very thorough with the options we have. I feel confident with him as he has been my uroligist for 18 yrs. I am 63 and otherwise in pretty good health.
I am having a bone scan and ct scan on Monday. At this point in time I am leaning towards surgery as the best trearment.
I have a good friend who had it done 4 yrs ago and is still doing very well.
I guess I am here looking for help and support and to give any help and support to others who share this disease.
