    I believe that he is referring to the high PSA. While this can be suggestive of potentially higher Gleason grade tumors not detected yet (but something that would be found in post-op pathology), I...

    My basic reason for suggesting a biopsy -- instead of other tests -- is because ONLY a biopsy can diagnose, or rule out, PC. And only a biopsy can stage any tumors that it detects.
