  • Biopsy in 2 weeks

    So I went to my new Urologists and mentioned all the test you guys mentioned here and while he said those are good test none are as definitive as a biopsy. I know everyone tolerates pain different but on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the worst. How bad was it for you?

  • Fusion prostate biopsy question

    I've posted about this before but I thought I'd start a fresh thread as I'm seeing the urologist again next Tuesday. His radiologist read my 3T pirads MRI as finding four and five lesions in the transitional Zone (which I think means the area closest to the uretha). However the fusion biopsy...

  • Has anyone with Gleason 8 or 9 said no to radio therapy?

    Although I have aggressive cancer (Gleason 9) there is still no evidence that it has spread outside the prostate. But my oncologist tells me that it probably has spread already, even though it doesn't yet show up on the scans. He recommends radio therapy on the off chance that it is still contained...

  • When can one relax and not worry about relapse?

    Had PC and radical prostatectomy March 2017. All PSA measurements until 1 month ago were < 0.01. I read that the longer you go without relapse (PSA increase and change being the indicator), the slimmer the chances of a relapse. When can one relax and feel normal again?
