I recognize some anxiousness in your comments. We all had them at one time or another. However, once we educated ourselves the future decisions we made were much easier to handle. I gained a lot of knowledge from a paperback book by Patrick Walsh, M.D., entitled "Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer". The book was printed five years ago, so it is dated in certain respects; however, it provides an excellent chapter on screening and detection, which I think is your primary concern at this point. After reading the book and the pertinent chapters of interest to you, I believe you will understand why your urologist suggests a repeat biopsy in six months and why three of us on this thread all suggested to you to send the slides to Dr. Epstein, a pathologist we hold in reverence.
