Had my first visit with the Uro yesterday to go over the biopsy in detail. One of the cores that was at 25% showed preineural invasion (PNI). I asked him if that was significant and he said not in selecting your choice of treatment except in the case of active surveillance which he didn't recommend anyway due to the percentage amount and number of positive cores. Reading online, you get both sides of the equation as to whether this is significant or not in treatment choices and as well as reoccurance after treatment
So here are my questions:
1) If you had PNI in your biopsy cores...did it make a difference in your treatment choice and why.
2) If you had PNI in your patholgy report in event of surgery...did you have any salvage treatments.
How many of you had evidence of PNI in either biopsy or pathology and had a reoccurance?
Still on my search for choices of treatment....
