A first thought is that you've done 2 1/2 years of AS, and that's a good thing. A reality about
PC is that it is usually multifocal, that multiple lesions form in the gland, and that it's not unusual for biopsies to miss a spot...and subsequent biopsies will find them.
I would suggest you ask for your slides to be sent to Johns Hopkins for confirmation, they are the best. After that, if the G7 is confirmed, then consideration of treatment options is likely in order. I would strongly suggest you investigate the radiation options with qualified radiation oncologists. We say in here all the time that urologists are surgeons, and they recommend surgery because that is what they know. Don't ask a urologist about
radiation therapy, any more than you would ask a carpenter how to fix your furnace.
Beyond that, know that we are here to support you, and help you sort out the options. And, you're still mostly G6, which means you have time to make an informed decision. Take that time, and make the decision that is best for YOU.
