interesting screen name! from my research, pain relating to prostate cancer normally only occurs in the advanced stages of cancer, usually when it has escaped from the prostate capsule and has metastasized in the bones. this does not necessarily mean that your friend has prostate cancer. however, any sign of severe pain in the body is usually very serious and requires prompt medical attention. tell your friend to pursue this with haste with the best doctors he can find. there has to be an explanation and he needs to get one.
best of luck to your friend. it is true that high grade PIN can lead to prostate cancer and needs to be monitored closely.
68, Biopsy 9/27/06, Stage T1c, PSA 7.1, Gleason 6 [less than 5% in two areas], Gleason 7 (3+4) [less than 20% in third area], negative DRE, bone scan and MRI. Starting proton radiation therapy 2/22/07.
