We have just started our journey as we were told yesterday that my husband has cancer. PSA score checked 7 years ago with a score of 1.4. He got sick all of a sudden and went to the doctor about 2 months ago. His PSA was 165.3. We got the biopsy report yesterday. His Gleason score is 4+4+8.

Welcome to HW, sorry you have to be here. There's a world of experience and advice available for the asking.
