Customer Question
I was diagnosed with...

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer from a TURP. 2 weeks later I had a biopsy that was negative for Cancer. My question is what treatment options do I have and what are the chances that the cancer is hiding?

Doctor's Assistant: When did cancer begin? Have you used any medication for it?

Feb 21, 2018. No treatment plan or medicine as of yet. I have a Gleason score of 6

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about cancer?

Only my urologist, not an oncologist

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My family has a history of different types of cancer, bone cancer ( grandma) multiple myeloma (mom), stage 4 ovarian cancer (sister)

chance of prostate cancer hiding your prostate is small

what gleason score was your prostate cancer on the TURP? gleason 3+3=6?

you can get a prostate 3 tesla parametric MRI scan to look for areas of cancer in your prostate gland

but if you had had a 12 core prostate biopsy which didn't show cancer, that is a good thing.

I completely understand that. My Gleason score was 3+3=6. My concern is it coming back. I have had blood in my urine for 6 years and I have finally gotten to a Urologist.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
is it possible that my urologist could’ve missed the specific spot where the cancer was?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer on 21 February 2018. It was found via TURP. I received a Gleason score of 3+3=6. A biopsy was conducted and it was negative. My question is could it be hiding? Could my urologist have missed a spot that is still afflicted? I do not want it to come back AT ALL. I want to have some sort of treatment, prostatectomy, radiation, or hormone therapy. Is this a safe approach for me? I don’t like the idea that something is or could still be lingering around in my body that could kill me. Please advise...

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
