Hi all -- I got the pathology report back from my prostate removal on October 31 and it showed that I had not one, but TWO, tumors (one graded 3+3 =6 on the left, which I knew about, plus another graded 4+5=9 on the right side. The more aggressive one was not even found in the biopsy last July!. I'm so glad I had the prostate removed. But....the report also says there was some minimal surgical margin on the grade 6 tumor (margin was negative on the grade 9, thankfully). Here's my question - has anyone had positive surgical margin for a low-graded small (.6 cm) tumor? Does this mean that if my PSA rises in the months/year to come that I might face radiation or another treatment?
