Hi guys my name is Nick, 2 years ago psa 5 had a biopsy 12 out of 12 clear. 2 years later psa 7, had a biopsy 6 out of 7 lobes cancer. My davinci is on Sept 3rd. My new doctor said I have a 50/50 chance its confined to the prostate.(hoping still) now not a canidate for nerve sparing surgery. If you have cancer my advice get it out now slow growing my ass as I have found out. I know were all different but watchful waiting scares the heck out of me and good luck if you are going this route. Peace to all...Nick

Good luck on your surgery Nick. In my mind I think the watchful waiting would only be useful depending on a person's age.

Let us know how your surgery goes. What City/State are you having it at?

If I were you I would get treated at the earliest opportunity. And don't worry about that 50/50, those numbers have a lot of noise. Important thing is that you have high volume cancer (as I did, 8 of 12 cores) and it has to come out. Mine turned out to be confined, and with your fairly low PSA, I hope yours is as well.
