I'm anxious to hear also...I just talked to my Doctor yesterday about
my Path report. Mine state Focally positive Type 5 cells. The Doctor explained that to me as even though my Gleason Came out as 3+4 There were some scattered type 5 cells.
I would assume it means that perhaps some cancer cells were found on the bladder neck?
