2 years ago i was diagnosed with stage 1 prostate cancer by my urologist. He wanted to operate immediately because that is what he does, surgery. I got a second opinion at Moffitt Cancer Center. I had Stage 3b with a Gleason score of 7 (4+3). Glad I got second opinion at a cancer center.

How are you doing? What treatment did you receive for it. I also have your grade and score. Thank you.

May 2021 my PSA was over 5. My urologist did a digital exam and said he felt something hard on the left side of my prostate. I had a biopsy done where 12 cores were removed and they came back negative. September 2022 my PSA was over 7 so I had another biopsy done by the same urologist. Guess what, I came back with stage 4 prostate cancer. I asked the urologist how that could be and he said in the first biopsy in May 2021 he only tested the left side where he felt something hard during the digital exam. Who the hell doesn't test the whole prostate? I asked my cancer doctor and he said the whole prostate should have been biopsied in May 2021. I had 9 weeks of 5 days a week of radiation treatments and my PSA is 0.32 and I have been on Lupron shots quarterly for about a year.
