Okay- so he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer--- and not only were we shocked since he found out at a routine physical but now we have to worry it may have spread to the bones?
Any advice/comforting thoughts/anything --- would help -- here is the background.
Prostate checked at a routine physical 5 years ago -- normal
Prostate checked recently -- PSA 9.7
Biopsy reveals cancer in every sample (11 of 14 cores --- whatever that means??)
Gleason Rating 4+5=9 (doctor says every sample showed cancer and is concerned as it is aggressive)
Bone Scan showed "three potential spots" -- -what does this mean?
Awaiting results of CT scan...
Next doctors appointment after the holidays....
Has anyone else found out they had (or their loved one) prostate cancer of a Gleason Rating of 9 ---- we are concerned as he had not had his prostate checked in 5 years and now are told this is the aggressive type....
Doctors reccommendation is surgery and possible radiation --------------
