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.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
In days gone bye you would have had 20 replies to your post. But to your question, at 58 years of age, with a gleason score of 3+4, that places you in the intermediate risk range for PCa. Had the 4 not been there, AS would be ideal, not that I am not saying it is not, just with a few caveats. Yearly repeat biopsy's would probably be in order, your physician of course not withstanding. In 2008 my PSA was 6, my gleason score was 4+3 in six cores of the twelve taken, my staging was T2A. I underwent EBRT and 9/12 of ADT. 15 years on and enjoying life.
