Husband just diagnosed. Small cancer both sides - but Drs say unsure if it has spread despite two MRI's and one Biopsy. They are blaming laser treatment for a benign prostate 7+ years ago possibly causing scarring and making the scans unclear. Now want to do a Transperineal Biopsy which involves full anaesthetic - catheter and 2% risk of something going wrong.
Our problem is the track record of our local hospital from the previous occasion - when hubby was messed about so much that he refused to be treated locally, instead going to a well known teaching hospital with an excellent record and speedy resolution of his problem.
Does anyone know how risky this procedure is? If still unclear afterwards - what next? Leave well alone and cross fingers or ask for a referral somewhere else.
any comments gratefully received. Sorry this is so long.
