Prostate Cancer Survivors

This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer.
There are only four rules:

  • No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
  • No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
  • No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
  • Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making

Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

Re: One last chance

For your age, be glad you are finding out early. If you do have surgery I hope it is by a surgeon that is very experienced with this operation.

Re: One last chance

PSA after a biopsy? The reading would be inaccurate.

So PSA of 5 with G7, your stats are not that bad. No need to rush into surgery or any other treatment

As others have stated, there are various other options available. Once you commit to a treatment, there is no going back.

From your comments, you need to do more research prior to pulling the trigger, so to speak. You can start on short term hormone therapy, which will start to weaken the cancer, giving you more time to figure things out. With your stats that may not even be necessary. Get other opinions from specialist in prostate cancer, not just your knife wielding urologist
