After having a TURP in October the biopsy showed some PC. As I am in a fairly good state of health for a 70 year old it was totally unexpected and I was dumbfounded. Saw a second Urologist and was told my MRI and bone scans were clear and that my PSA was 0.3, Gleason score 7 and the stage was TB1. The consultant told me it was not aggressive and could be 5 maybe 10 years before it became a problem. I am on active surveillance and have ben told I will have to have a PSA test every three months for the rest of my life. Though I'm still concerned, I am not as worried as I was, and consider myself fortunate as it could have ben a lot worse. Any advice from anyone in a similar situation would be welcome.
