In the meantime, I would start your education process. Research your options, I would suggest second and third opinions, which may include multiple looks at your biopsy slides.
My advice would be to be ahead of the doc. You decide what is the best option for you, and when the doctor(s) suggest treatments, you will be able to intelligently discuss and decide for yourself which way to go. Knowledge really is power in this disease. It helps to alleviate the fear and uncertainty. It would appear that you will qualify for surgery, radiation, Brachytherapy, or other treatments.
Just continue to take deep breaths, and tell yourself this is not the end of the world. Take charge, make your decisions, and go for it. Staying with us on this site will be a big help for you.
