I'm new to this club. 51 years old with a gleason 8. Diagnosed April 5. I'm going to be treated at UCLA. I have 2 young kids age 12 & 14 and I'm panicked. I have not told them yet as I can't get the word "cancer" out of my mouth. I'm set for a PSMA CT this week and an MRI on the 19th. I'll then be meeting up with docs on 24th to go over results. Is a gleason 8 always gonna be stage 4?
Anyway, I'm glad I found you guys.
