Hi. My name is Lisa and my dad, who is 82, just found out today he has prostate cancer. (The reason for my user name-billysaunt-is because I have used this site for information for my 25 year old nephew who has colon cancer.) All we know so far is that his PSA is a 4, having been a 2.5 six months ago. The plan is for a bone scan scheduled for two weeks from now. I would appreciate if anyone could please provide me with basic information on what we will face from here on out. (To be honest, I don't even know the relevance of his PSA score.) Basic things we MUST know to ask the doctors, expected courses of treatment, etc. Any information you could provide would be most helpful and appreciated. Please keep him in your prayers, as I will do the same for you. Thank you.
