Hi all. I had a question about perineural invasion.
I'll assume that most know what perineural invasion is, so I'll spare the explanation, but although my biopsy report showed that there was no perineural invasion seen, my post-op pathology showed that it was present. However, my urologist told me that a high percentage of his patients’s post-op pathology reports showed perinural invasion, and that since my report showed that there was no capsular penetration, negative margins and negative seminal vesicles, that it was not a cause for concern.
Just wondering how many out there had perinural invasion noted on your post-op pathology reports, and what signfigance, if any, your doctor attributed to it.
