I had my 4 week post surgery followup visit with the surgeon this afternoon. Among other things, we went through my pathology report, and here are the highlights. Any help with interpretation would be appreciated.
Diagnosis: Prostate, laparoscopic excision-adenocarcinoma
Seminal Vesicle, bilateral, excision-no histopathologic abnormality
soft tissue, fat over prostate, excision-no evidence of malignancy
The tumor type is adenocarcinoma, acinar type
Intraglandular Tumor Extent
The intraglandular tumor extent is 15-20% (crude visual estimate)
The Gleason's Score is 3+4
location of the tumor involves the
Lymph-vascular invasion is not identified
Extraprostatic (extracapsular) extension is absent
Seminal Vesicles are free of tumor
Sampled Specimen Margins
All sampled surgical margins are free of tumor
And, that, is that.
