Your cancer was found only in 1/2 of your prostate. Perhaps only one of the two lobes was involved. You got there early, Mal. The significance is a much improved prognosis. If fact, your numbers indicate that a complete remission is likely and you shoud take precaution and get those semi-annual PSA tests. Your Gleason is a bit on the higher side but not like my 4+3=7. My stage is pT3b. Whick means I was found to have locally metastatic disease and the predominant grade is 4 or aggressive cancer.
Your best news is that you do not likely have positive margins and that means that cancer likely did not leave the prostate.
