as JNF said, we are not Drs or pathologists. With that said, it would seem that if 5% was Grade 4, then 95% was grade 3, and those cells together comprise the tumor which as is stated in the path report, is 15% of the entire prostate. So i think its 5% of the 15%.
Not even sure i know what i just said, so ask Epstein. But seriously, i think my logic makes sense.
This has always been the way I interpreted it. Now I’m interested. I’m looking at the report when I get home (in a couple of days). And i’ll Post it up.
I’ve always thought 3+4 could mean different things. My thinking is:
My path is actually 95% 3 + 5% 4. Seems that’s a far cry from 55% 3 + 45% 4. Just as...
55% 4 + 45% 3....seems as it would be more benign than 95% 4 + 5% 3.
Maybe I will look for it. Might email the pathologist if it’s unclear to me.
