Any experience/ideas for doctors in Arizona for possible pc recurrence? Stay near Tucson but could drive to Phoenix and even possibly Southern California. Thanks.
Age at diagnosis:59. Prostatectomy 3/09. Gleason 3+4=7. Very small prostate (15 gr.?). No positive margin (but very close). Ploidy=Aneuploid. PSA <.1 for 5 yr. Then 04, .05, 06., and .07 over past 2 yr.

I haven't used it, but in Tucson there is an NCI-designated cancer center, the University of Arizona Cancer Center, and they have a couple of oncologists there who specialize in prostate cancer, the last time I looked. http://uacc.arizona.edu/

Can't help with urologists or oncologists in AZ, but if you ever need scans, AZ Molecular Imaging in Phoenix and Dr Fabio Almeida are the best. Not sure if they have any facilities in Tucson also.

Look into Doctor Michael Levin at the Arizona Institute of Urology. He is my Uro and has taken excellent care of me. I can not recommend him highly enough.
