Ok, I may be going nuts but why doesn't this make sense? We get our prostates poked full of holes during biopsy and are told to wait 6-8 weeks to let the bleeding stop before treatment. Now, if the biopsy is positive, why aren't all these little holes leaking cancer cells into our gut for those 6-8 weeks?
If this stupid disease doesn't kill me, it'll certainly drive me crazy.
