I think knowing what we do now (knew not a thing about prostate cancer before diagnosis) I would get a second opinion just be on the safe side. Being comfortable with your doctor is very important and there is no reason to be treated without respect through the entire time. You deserve a return call. Maybe it is nothing but I stick to my thoughts of getting a second opinion.
