For anyone interested, I have provided a link to a Prostate Cancer web site here in Canada. Has some good information for people just starting their journey.
Age: 55 Ontario, Canada
PSA: 1.2
Dec 2010: Family Dr. found lump on routine physical (not there 1 year prior)
Feb. 6 2011 biopsy: 3 of 11 cores, T2a, Gleason 6 (3,3)
Urologist recommended "watchful waiting" ...back to my family doctor he recommended surgery.
Back to Urologist asked him to refer for third opinion (he did so reluctantly)
3rd opinion: Urologist recommends surgery
April 15: open radical prostatectomy
April 27: catheter removed...absolutely no ED issues and a little incontinence.
May 6 2011: Pathology report excellent, cancer confined to prostate, Gleason score remained at 6!
