To Deebo - Now that you know what the Gleason score is, the next step should be, with G(3+4) to ask that your slides be send to an expert in Prostate pathology, such as Dr Jonathan Epstein, at Johns Hopkins, for a second opinion. The reason is, that most local pathologists look at many different types of slides, and reading is a subjective thing. So you want someone who reads only prostate slides to have a look and render an opinion. A second definitive opinion from an expert will help guide you to the right treatment, or as NKinney says, to whether you NEED treatment at al.
