Thanks Allen, I missed that post from you last month. It does
lend support to the idea that the, assumption/assertion that G6 is indolent and does/can not mutate/progress to higher grade, is not supported by all available data.
There were only 31 men studied in this, but I am sure the study will be continuing, and the mri fusion technique will play an ever increasing role in this and future studies regarding long term
potential for gleason 6 CaP.
Diagnosed in August 2010 (age 46)
AS for 3.5 years
Biopsy October 2013 found more G6
re-read by Bostwick 3+4=g7
Davinci LRP 1/2/14
post op pathology organ confined G6, all margins negative,
30% volume, both sides involved (much more than clinically indicated)
PSA zero 4/14
PSA<.01 7/14, Testosterone 178 (hmm?)
10/24 <.01, T. 147
PSA's <.01, still very low T.
