My husband, age 51, was diagnoised with prostate cancer in March 2011, gleason score 7. Had a biopsy, 6 from each side, one came back positive. He had robotic surgery to remove his prostate last week. We got the results today. They said cancer was worst than they thought and it was stage III, found cancer on both sides of the gland, changed the score to 3+4. All contained, BUT what was uncommon and they had not seen before was there was cancer outside the gland, but did not penetrate from the gland. Has anyone seen this and is this cancer outside the gland still considered prostate cancer and what are his risks? Should we request a body scan to see if there is any more cancer?
