Wed, Feb 19 8:14am · Living with Prostate Cancer: Meet others & introduce yourself in Prostate Cancer

Good morning poodledoc
Thank you for your reply I hope all is well with you

I have researched and researched and researched spoke with doctors twice dealing with the cancer facility here in Maine at Maine medical Center partners good group of people but no they do not do any trials or anything different my options that they have given me a surgery or radiation and I’m having a lot of issues with what my life will be after. I do have an appointment scheduled at Dana-Farber to speak with three physicians they’re on trials on March 11 maybe they will give me some other alternatives I don’t know but I am being told that I should do something before summer my Glisan scores are mainly sevens now with 30% I believe is what they told me hard to take in all of this

In June I was diagnosed with low stage prostate cancer I had mostly Gleason scores of six and one of seven I chose to do the optimum surveillance as well at that time I also did some genetic testing that showed that I was low risk I had an MRI done three months ago .
The MRI showed I had two lesions in the lower half of each lobe of the prostate I Promptly had another biopsy That told me one of the lesions was cancerous and the other one was not the biopsy was direct and they took more samples the second time I am now considered a stage 2 intermediate.
II saw that before you have your biopsy consult with your physician about an MRI before I am struggling with the options still looking for trials at this point but I’m told I should move quickly

Dec 12, 2019 · PSA numbers: Questions about new treatments in Prostate Cancer

Hello and you stony I have written at the site a while back when I started looking for answers about my newly developed prostate cancer diagnosis I had a MRI of my prostate done last week the results showed that I had to 1 1/2 cm lesion on both sides of my prostate gland
My first question when I joined this site was are there any new treatments any new ways of going in and not killing the prostate completely it seems to me that with all our medical technology why don’t they just go in and take out those lesions ?
they know the size of them And where they are exactly are because of the MRI.
Are there any new doctors that do that is there somebody out there that can help me with this question because I don’t want to lose my prostate next step the telling me is another biopsy or I should go to radiation I don’t want to radiation
