Hi. I am a head/neck cancer survivor and lung cancer survivor who has been around for more than five years. Never been here before, because I feel like going into boards that do not relate to you is voyeurism.
I am here now because I just discovered my 74 year old dad, strong as an ox and as sharp as a sword, hs been diagnosed. I know absolutely nothing about this, but here is a quote from my dad, if it can be of any help in your opinions, and I know that that is all they are:
The doctor said the results showed one of the plugs showed Gleason score of 9(4+5), one showed 7(3+4), and one showed 6(3+3). He said this was on a scale of 2 to 10. Nine out of twelve showed benign. Two of the cancers are "high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (high-grade PIN)."
I'm not sure what exactly my questions are, and are hoping that you can help me come up with the proper questions.
Thanks in advance.
