Recently diagnosed; T2c/NO/M0 Gleason 6 with PNI. At biopsy results meeting the nurse specialist described the tumour as more "pussycat" than "tiger". Subsequently, they have recommended active surveillance as best treatment option.
However, I also have BPH (benign Prostatatic Hyperplasia / enlargement) which cause my urinary symptoms and the acute retention which started this "ball rolling". The nurse was a bit embarrassed that the MDT meeting overlooked this factor when making selecting the best treatment option for me. In addition,I note that the PNI may be a factor in the cancer (even a pussycat like mine) migrating out of the prostate capsule.
I was initially comfortable with active surveillance but, realise it wont solve my urinary issues and with the presence of PNI being a potential risk factor I;m thinking of surgery.
Anyone with a similar diagnosis/issue/questions?
