We are in the midst of deciding what direction to go. My husband (57) had a PSA of 4.6 with DRE showing non-smooth borders. With his biopsy 1/12 biopsies showed positive with a Gleason score of 7(3+4), 12% and 1/12 had HGPIN. The other 10 areas were B9. The urologist encourages DaVinci surgery and discourages any CT or MRI because of cost and little help in diagnosing advancement of the PCa. We can go to Iowa City or Mayo Clinic in MN. It is very difficult to find any numbers on any of the surgeons and we are in a quandry as to what to do. I am almost more nervous about what is in the HGPIN as I am about the actual area with PCa. Any feedback on either hospital or if we should be requesting further diagnosing would be greatly appriciated.
