My husband (56) just received his final pathology report after his prostatectomy. T3a Gleason 4+3 (70% 4), Intraductal Carcinoma identified and Cribiform glands Present. EPE (non-focal) right posterior mid. no nodes involved and SV clear.
Prior to surgery his PSA was low, only 1.78 (but he was taking finasteride, so i understand we should think of that PSA more like 3.56...but that still isn't very high. he had no issues, cancer found during a colonoscopy & DRE that was done during that procedure. He also had a PSMA PET which did not show any cancer in other parts of his body, had a Decipher test that was .98 (which was scary to us)
I have tried to find info on this intraductal carcinoma and what i have found seems not good news.....we don't meet with dr until Jan (seems like forever away, will try to get something sooner).
Interested to hear if others had this and what does it mean for the treatment ahead. I like knowing the truth, so we can be better prepared.
Thanks in advance for any insights, experiences you may be willing to share.
