This looks like a pretty good report, but there are some confusing statements that you may need the doctor to explain.
It sounds as though they cauterized the margin of the prostate, and are not sure if it was a negative margin at that point or not.
The focal presence of HPINS would appear to say that there were some precancerous cells in the margin.
This is just my non-expert opinion. Sounds like a session with the doctor is in order.
Good Luck and welcome to Healing Well. I am sure some more knowledgable guys than me will chime in.
