  • 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: First ever biopsy today

Congrats on the good news ! Yes, I had no freezing either...and 2 low grade hits of cancer out of 13. Only one was painful. Hopefully you are done with this site.

Good News

Hi Don,
Congratulations on the good news from the biopsy. As you are now no doubt aware, HGPIN is regarded pre-malignant lesion of the prostatic, so just remember to continue screening.

best wishes,
john

Re: Good News

Yes, Thanks John

Page 179-180 of the book by Patrick Walsh was reassuring that although it is often associated with PCa and found next to cancer - it is not as feared as it once was. It just means to keep on watching and testing. My Doc suggested an MRI if PSA keeps rising before another biopsy.

Thanks for your advice and knowledge.
