I am very happy to hear you news, you most likley will never suffer from Prostate Cancer. Yours and our prayers certainly may have been heard.
I am concerned that this may effect others who have insignificant sounding biopsies. I for one was very close to watchful waiting. Here is my example.
3+3 = Gleason 6, 1 of 10 needles at only 1%, 1 lobe involved., T1C
3+4 = Gleason 7, 10% involvement in both lobes, encapsulated, bad margin, T2C
Your case is the exception to the rule it seems. I am so happy for you but it is unlikely that we will see this again on this site. I hope you have a special celebration planned.
