Phyllis, in order to better answer your questions, please share some more information:
What is the current PSA? What has PSA been doing over the last few years?
If there was a biopsy, what are the results? There will be information about
Gleason scores, # of positive cores, %involvement in the cores.
If you share these data points with us, we can better answer the questions. Like Andrew-in-the-shop said, at 80, if the scores are low, then you may not have to do anything....unless he's planning to live to 105, that is.
