Here is my deliema....I want a 2nd opinion regarding my lab results and from agreat Urologist in Portland Oregon. after looking at my test results...however...since I have been diagnosed with Gleason 7 3+4 no matter what the 2nd opinion has to say am I not just stalling and/or putting off the inevitable which is Robotic Surgery or whateverelse I find that is supposed to work and have the least amount of side effects.
I have been advised by several on this board to get an MRI to find out where the cancer is located and to determine whether or not it has spread. Won't that be determined anyway at the time the surgery is done? Is the MRI an unnecessary step?
Thanks for your advice,
