Hi, again, Leroy.
Keep in mind that all my comments are made as a well-educated (school of hard knocks) patient with no medical training.
One of the very important recommendations for newly diagnosed PC patients is to get a second opinion of their biopsy results, specifically an expert opinion from someone specializing in prostate biopsy. Doctors are very used to this, and it happens all the time...you won't be hurting feelings asking for this. There are several expert labs, and they are set-up to take 2nd opinion business. Read THIS.
The more fusing of cells, the worse. Fusing starts showing up in Gleason 3, and gets more prevelant in Gleason 4.
hope this helps...
