Proscapt, I will list the information that I have.
The strange thing about this whole thing is that my biopsy report with 18 cores showed one core with a small (less than 1mm) amount of grade 3=3=6 on the right side with nothing showing on the left. When the doctor called me with the report he called it a very small amount of cancer. The prostate size was 35.7 cc. I had a previous 12 core biopsy several months earler that showed nothing. Due to my high psa and being in a panic, I told them to take the prostate out.
After surgery, the path report indicated a carcinoma that measured 1.4 cm in dia which was on the left side of the gland from apex to base with no carcinoma found on the right side. Gleason went from 6 to 8 which makes me glad that I decided to take it out. I have read of many who were upgraded after surgery.
The report did mention high grade prostatic intraepithelial neooplasia ( what ever that is) adjacent to the tumor and on the right side.
The above has me wondering how the cancer moved from right to left and how 30 total cores didn't find a top to bottom tumor.
As I mentioned earler, it would be intesting to know what part of the final PSA score was BPH and what part cancer.
