My partner of 11 years was just diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. He is 48 years old. His PSA count is 30 and his is an 8 on the Gleason index. Needless to say, we are very worried and terrified by everything we read online. We live outside of Boston and are currently at Lahey Clinic in Burlington. His surgeon seems pretty aggrssive and very responsive with information and tests. He specializes in the DaVinci proceedure and that seems to be the way to go if surgery is called for. We will most likely seek a second opinion at Dana Farber too. Anyone out there have any advice on medical care in the Boston area? I will take any and all suggestions.
Thanks to all
