Great news on teh biopsy. And CAT scans sometimes do get a muddy picture, too, so no need to get too excited. The biopsy could be lymph, but it can still be treated. And about the Gleason, it is important information but I like to two in eight core sample thing. It still sounds small. I was 4 in 8 with a psa near the drinkin age. (for me it was the drinkin age). But stay positive and stay Hopeful. I send prayer, but you keep sending the Love. God Bless you and your beloved uncle.
