I'm 58 yrs old, scored PSA 11, DRE found "lump;" a-symptomatic, had ultrasound biopsy. Tomorrow I see urolgogist for results of biopsy. Since initial diagnosis I've been researching PC everywhere, and run into this "Gleason Score" thing mentioned constantly, yet no one ever takes the trouble to actually DEFINE it!
It seems to be an important topic. Could someone please explain this score to me? To my inexperienced eyes it looks formidable, like trigonemetry! As math has always been my greatest failing, please explain in simple terms!
