Keep in mind this is initial staging and a best estimate of where you stand at the moment. To get to T2, you typically need to be at a point where the doctor can feel it on a DRE or else it shows up on some kind of imaging. As of right now, you've had PSA tests and needle biopsy with something in both sides...thus the T1C. You may, indeed, be T2 but just may not have had other tests confirm or suggest that (yet).
The "good" news at this point is that you are G6 based on the needles only and you also have a reasonable PSA number. You have lots of options. Congratulations on catching this at what seems fairly early in the process.
