    Welcome aboard, Slow. Your signature has also come through very nicely.

    Looks like a lot of positive cores, but ALL of them are Gleason 6 -- which is NOT life-threatening.

    With so many positive cores, though, I'm sure you will be offered surgery or radiation as a primary treatment to cure the cancer.

    In the meantime, be prepared to consult with topflight surgeons and radiation oncologists to learn the pros and cons of both treatment types which, happily, are identical in cure rates.

    Also, buy a copy of the 4th edition of Dr Pat Walsh's "Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer." Lots of answers to all of your questions.

    And, of course, you'll find some answers here in the forum as you are now among a whole flock of men AND women eager to help you.

    Good luck!

    July 2011 local PSA lab reading 6.41 (from 4.1 in 2009). Mayo Clinic PSA 9/ 2011 = 5.7.
    Local uro DRE revealed significant BPH, no lumps.
    PCa Dx Aug. 2011 age of 61.
    Biopsy DXd adenocarcinoma in 3/20 cores (one 5%, two 20%). T2C.
    Gleason 3+3=6. CT abdomen, bone scan negative.
    DaVinci prostatectomy 11/1/11 at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN), nerve sparing, age 62.
    Surgeon was Dr. Matthew Tollefson, who I highly recommend.
    Final pathology shows tumor confined to prostate.
    5 lymph nodes, seminal vesicules, extraprostatic soft tissue all negative.
    1.0 x 0.6 x 0.6 cm mass involving right posterior inferior, right posterior apex & left
    mid posterior prostate. Right posterior apex margin involved by tumor over 0.2 cm length,
    doctor says this is insignificant.
    Prostate 98 grams, tumor 2 grams.
    Catheter out in 7 days. No incontinence, minor dripping for a few weeks.
    Eight annual post-op exams 2012 through 2019: PSA <0.1
    Semi-firm erections without "training wheels," usable erections with 100mg Sildenafil.
    NOTE: ED caused by BPH, not the surgery.

    Returning to forum after about a year. Diagnosed last year with a very slight positive biopsy result (Gleason 6, 3+3 in one of 12 cores). AS since last May, PSA in the fall was OK, but elevated this time. I anticipate another biopsy when I go back for my uro appointment this week. So I figured I should get my signature set, I assume I'll be in touch with the forum shortly.
    DOB 5/24/54 Age 63 at Dx. No family history of PCa.
    PSA: 3/2016 - 4.2; 10/2016 - 3.8; 1/2018 - 5.2; 10/2018 - 5.4; 4/2019 - 6.8
    Biopsy 4/2018: Lab examined, sent to JH for 2nd opinion. Per JH, 1 core (out of 12) positive, less than 5%; Gleason 6 (3+3)
    AS since May 2018
    Follow-up October 2018. Continue AS.
    Next uro May 2019.
    Biospsy #2 - 6/2019. MRI guided US, 12 cores @ Hahnemann University Hospital, Philadelphia. Awaiting results, approx. 7/1/19

    Hi Moe,

    Welcome back! Update us after your visit. You know the AS drill: followups, either periodic or for changes on imaging or an unusual PSA increase.

    Best of luck,
