I was was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. I am 56 years old.
My PSA is 6.29. I had a biopsy which came back cancerous. I was then sent for a MRI and then a fusion biopsy which also came back cancerous. Gleason score is 3+4=7.
My doctor, said that based on my test results, surveillance is not recommended. He is suggesting that my best options are surgery or radiation. He also stated that radiation may not always get all the cancer and said that surgery would be the best option for me.
Not sure if I should speak to a radiologist and consider radiation or have the surgery. I also am undecided on the type of surgery that I should consider, open or robotic.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
