Cancer: Prostate Message Board


Cancer: Prostate Board Index


In Dec 2018 I had a biopsy and was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer - Low Risk. There were 14 cores taken and 5 were positive. I don't have the pathology report but will ask the surgeon for it.


My initial thoughts (and the doctor's/surgeon's quasi suggestion) was to have surgery to remove the prostate (his comment was "surgery is booked up thru Mar"). The options given at the time were:

1. Active Surveillance

2. Surgery, Radical Prostatectomy (Robotic or Open)

3. Radiation

4. Other: Cryosurgery, high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), focal therapy


The plan at this time are to eat more plant-based foods, get a PSA in Apr, and get a 2nd biopsy in May.


Questions:

a) Where do I go to get a 2nd opinion?


b) What additional information is in the pathology report (i.e. other that 5 of 14 cores tested positive)?


c) Anyone had experience with the Cyberknife procedure?
