Urolgist gave me some bad news, said removal of bladder and prostate needed to be done. REPORT of condition: INFILTRATIVE HIGH GRADE UROTHELIAL CARCINOMA.I have read this is a very common bladder cancer. At the age of 79 I question the outcome of this type of surgery.No C-T scans done as yet to determine the grade or stage--should this be done before a plan is put in place? Report listed-- CK7 positive within tumor cells --Ck20positive within tumor cells. P S A negitive within tumor cells.--P S A P same p63 positive within tumor cell nuclei. Tumor necrosis is present
From this report I have no idea of the stage I'm in or the degree in which the cancer has infiltered Can some one help me understand this report and treatment.
