My dad just got is 12 year PSA and it is <.1
 
He had G6 and did only radiation therapy 12 years ago.  He was 58 when dx. and is obviously now 70 with no issues. I'm hoping the 12 years will run in the family.

1st PSA ever @ 38 years old 2.4
Gleason 6 (50 Point Biopsy) (6 Cores positive - Small Focus Each)
open RP 10/08  Johns Hopkins  Dr. Partin
pT2 Organ Confined Gleason 6 (tertiary score 0)
1/15/2009 (3 Month) <.1
10/15/2009 (1 Year) <.1
