Welcome to HW. More information would help us respond better.
G9 is agressive, there are four basic treatment modes: active surveillance (AS), surgery, radiation (in a number of forms), and hormone therapy (HT). In advanced cases there are also chemo options.
Which one you chose depends on a number of factors including the gleason score, how aggressive is the PC, where is the PC (prostate bed, lymph nodes, bones), and so on.
Surgery depends on the details of the case, PC confined to the prostate is a candidate for surgery, once there are mets, surgery isn't as usefully. So, surgery is possible, but is it right for you?
That's the real question,
I'll be in the shop.
