Had first visit with Urologist - DRE normal, opted for no biopsy
PSA in August 2015 - PSA 9.27
August 2015 - Had 2nd visit to Urologist - Had initial biopsy
September 2015 - Biopsy revealed 4 of 12 samples positive: 2 -G7 ; 2 -G8 All located in same quadrant on right side. all others clear.
Sept 2015 had both Bone scan and CT scan - Both clean
open of Radiation or Surgery and suggested be done soon due to the G8's found
Leaning towards surgery as RT seems to have many more adverse side effects and my thoughts are, take the sucker out as the best option.
Just looking to see what other feedback I might get.
