New Member, best of luck to all:
Radical done 2/24/09 at Hopkins, tumor upgraded to t3a by pathologist, organ confined throughout, extraprostatic extension, positive margin, right, apex, posterior, focal. Psa post op was 0.4, biospy& post op gleason 6, my pc physcian suggested I stop worring about pc due to low psa even though my father had it, the gastro DR. caught it during colonoscopy. Seminal vessel ,negative,lymphphatic small vessel, lymph nodes all negative for tumor. Path report note says the apical margin for the speciman is focally positive. However all additional tissues taken from this area are negative, indicating that the true surgical margin is most likely negative. It appears there is a lot of well informed writers out there. Any comments or similar diagnosis info would be greatly appreciated.
