My name is George, I am 54 yrs old, have been recently diagnosed with Prostate Cancer Gleason Grade 4+5=9
CT Scan as foll:
There are mUltiple small subcentimeter retroperitoneal lymph nodes at and below the level of the renal arteries which do not meet strict CT size criteria.
The prostate appears prominent size measuring approximately 49 x 43 cm in the axial plane. The median lobe of the prostate indents the base of the bladder. There is mild asymmetry in the size and attenuation of the seminal vesical glands, the right larger and lower in attenuation than the left.
There is atelectasis/consolidation at the left lower lobe. Minor subsegmental atelectatic changes are seen at the lingula and right lower lobe.
1. Pelvic lymphadenopathy including bilateral iliac chain nodes compatible with metastatic nodal involvement, as described. Multiple sm.all subcentimeter retroperitoneal lymph nodes are indeterminate.
2. The right seminal vesicle gland is mildly larger in size and lower in
I am so worried, my turn with Urologist is only after 10 days, this is the way here in Canada under Health care system, but I am so worried and can't wait untill then to know where I am heading and which way of treatment I should take!!!
I need your help friends to guide me to the best way of treatment and whether you have an idea about how many years I will live in light of the above results!!!!
Your support will be greatly appreciated
