Dre small hard spot on right
Transpirenial biopsy and Mri
40 cores 1 core cancer right posterior 3.5% ( 1 of 10 cores)
Don't know what that means
My Mri before my biopsy was graded t1 as nothing could be seen then it was was looked at by the Mdt team and they upgraded it to t2 c as they say area on left side looked suspicious but my biopsy didn't pick anything up. They all decided with my psa and Gleason score being low grade I should go on active surveillance even though t2c says not advisable for active surveillance, because my biopsy does not match my Mri they advise this is the best option for now. My biopsy did pick up high grade pin in left side posterior.
If anybody can shred some light on this then I would be grateful as don't understand how they upgraded when biopsy said it was clear. Also my biopsy was saturation one 49 cores taken.
I am fit and healthy and no family history of this disease I have Bph and symptoms off that prompted me to go to docs then everything else followed. I have read up on Bph and it states this can raise psa levels as prostate enlarges and mine is 84 cc hence some water work probs, but got no symptoms now whatsoever no up through night normal flow etc.
So with this feel probably best is for AS as all side effects of treatment are awful and unless necessary don't want to go down that route also saw an article about hifu still in early stages it says but no side effects etc so one to keep an eye on if need treatment in future.
