Background-was applying for life insurance last fall and found my PSA had rose from 2.4 to 3.4 in a few months. Insurance co. asked for Dr. to confirm. Did so, PSA was 4.2 after a few months. Did biopsy, 3 spots of Gleason 6 and one with Gleason 3 + 4.
Was set to do seeds, but had to get second opinion as my uruologist could not practice at hospitals that do seeds only.
Had to go to another uruologist. His opinion is that 3 + 4 may require seeds and then moderate level of external radiation. They are looking at slides again, so I'll get another set of gleason scores.
My diagnosis was T1c, gleason 6 and 1 7, 3 + 4.
I am not sure now, how to assess my risk.
