Wow, you guys are amazing and I am truly touched by all your rapid, informative, and concerned responses.
So, to answer the most popular question most of you had, let me try to list some stats...I just picked up the report from the Urologist today - we haven't been able to meet up with him to discuss it
#1-5 = benign
#6 (left apex) = adenocarcionma (gleason 3+3=6) 60% of specimen
#7 (rt base ) = " (gleason 3+4=7) 10% of specimen,gleason pattern 4 comprises 20%
of the cancer
#8 (rt mid) = " (gleason 3+4=7) 30% of specimen, w/partial ductal adenocarcinoma
features. Gleason pattern 4 comprises 20% of cancer, high grade
prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia. Immunostain for basal cell-specific
high molecular weight keratin (34BE12), racemace and p63 supports
#9 (rt apex) = " (gleason 3+3=6) 50% of specimen. Hight grade prostatic intraepithelial
#10(rt lat base)= " (gleason 3+4=7) 50% of specimen (ductal subtype), gleason pattern
4 comprises 40% of the cancer. Perineural invasion. High grade
prostatic intra. neo.
#11(rt lat mid)= " (gleason 3+4=7) 20% of specimen. Gleason pattern 4 comprises 40%
of the cancer (34BE12)
#12(rt lat apex)= " (gleason 3+4=7) 80% of specimen w/ partial ductal adeno. features
Gleason pattern 4 comprises 40% of the cancer. Perineural invasion
The CT detected a 3cm low-density mass on his pancreas and a 1.8cm nodule in the rt adrenal gland.
We have an MRI scheduled for this Friday.
This is pretty lengthy - just copied it right from the report; wasn't sure how to abbreviate/condense.
