I have Gleason 6 prostate cancer (2 cores - 1% and 3% - of 14) and have been on AS since 2017. A recent MRI revealed a PIRADS-3 lesion, and the doctor at MSKCC would like to move ahead with a transperineal biopsy targeting a specific region.
Up to this point, I have only had transrectal biopsies.
If anyone has some experience with transperineal biopsies and could share some perspective, that would be greatly appreciated.... especially comparisons between the two.
I know this type of biopsy requires anesthesia.
Thanks very much in advance for any replies!
