Greeting all, i'm a new here. Found this support group while scavenging the internet for information about the disease. I've just been diagnosed this week with a "aggressive localized prostate cancer" as they say. No symptom yet. PSA is 15, G8 and both the biopsy and the MRI says no invasion outside the prostate capsule. Scintigraphy and Bone scan next monday. I'm in Canada on public healthcare and i have talked to urologist who suggest RP with ePLND...but i'd like to meet an oncologist first to look at more systemic treatement like Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy prior to Radical Prostatectomy.
If i can't find an onco-uro open minded rapidly in my vicinity on the public healthcare, i may elect to go to New York in private medecine. Any recommandation of a oncologist favourable to systemic approach would be welcomed.
