I'm a 52 y/o male with a PSA of 4.9 and rising.
Recent biopsy showed Gleeson score of 6/6/7(4+3) and 8 (4+4) across the midsection of the prostate. Bone scan and CT scan were both negative for spread. After speaking to my urologist he indicated that due to my age robotic prostatectomy surgery was the best option as radiation and then surgery, should I need it later, is rough and often doesn't come out well for most. My research shows that this is true.
My question to the forum is:
Is there anyone is my age range with similar Gleeson scores that opted for radiation instead of surgery. If so, why?
Any and all advice is appreciated.
