I am just going to guess that with a PSA of 5, they won't find it in the bones. Besides, bone scans rarely find cancer in these situations. We also see false positives from old injuries, arthritis, etc.
I would just try to calm her down. Try to just take the facts as they come, and then deal with it. We aren't talking emergency procedures today. She needs to just get educated, look at the entire picture, consult multiple doctors, and then start to make decisions.
Cancer is a bad diagnosis, but not the worst thing he could have. She has weeks or months, not days to decide the best course of action. Just get her to take some deep breaths.
