My Pathology Report of My Prostate Biopsy

August 2015---Bob Jensen, age 61

PSA---0.7---Gleason score for Section B---3+4=7, 40%

Section C---Gleason score---3+4=7, 20%

The cancer is all on the left side of my prostate.

The nodule found by my urologist is on the right side.

I am now cancer-free. I get a PSA test every 6 months.

PSA---0.7---Low score, but cancer was present. The nodule was not there in the 6 months prior.

Well, I have to give your doc a thumbs up for finding this with such a low PSA and so small an area of tumor. They just uploaded my biopsy results, and I wish they had prepared a map to make things easier to visualize. Tomorrow I talk to my surgeon and talk strategy.

I am forever grateful to him. The nodule was very small. Good luck. Surgery was my best option. I have no regrets. It has been 3 years.

Please share your results.

I will. And yet, my biopsy on paper looks considerably more ominous than yours (though pretty typical here as I look around). The first urologist spent about a millisecond with his finger up there and pronounced "Nice small prostate, 20 gms, no lumps, no bumps".

We'll see what the Doc has to say tomorrow.

I hope it goes well. Please keep us posted.

Wow, thanks Bob. This diagram is really helpful. I hope I get one from my doc as well. I got a report but didn’t get this.

Thanks. Good luck.

I would never have suspected cancer with a 0.7 PSA. Very glad your surgery went well. Mine cut the nerves causing impotence. Keep well.

Thanks. He was able to spare my nerves. I am thankful. Is there anything they can do for you?

No, there was nothing they could do to restore my ability to get erections. Naturally this had a huge effect on our sex life. I feel fortunate that I was able to create minimal orgasms for years by using a vibrator. They were reasonably strong at the beginning but after all these years, they are weak and extremely hard to produce.
