My husband was diag. with an orginal PSA of 31 and a Gleason grade 9 in 2005. He was told he is considered T1C. He was told that surgery was not an option for him because of the high PSA and high Gleason. His choice for treatment was radiation and Viadur implant. All bone scans, etc were clear when he was orginally tested. His PSA has dropped to .01. However, I have read that you need to know what stage your cancer is and that this is very important. My question is since he did not have surgery - does anyone have any idea what stage his cancer would be considered or can a stage only be determined with surgery?
