Your Gleason score is not the worst as these are graded from 6 to 10 and are scored 3+3, 3+4, 4+3, 4+4, 4+5, 5+5. So your husbands score is a medium aggressive cancer, at worst.
Depending on the spread, that will me determined by an MRI, he may be given some treatment options, or a definitive action plan of what to do.
Considering that many of the cores did not contain cancer, is good news, as is the majority of the scores being 3+3 (the lowest grade of cancer)
I apologise that this message is brief as there is a lot more to be said.
I am sure that someone will come along soon and offer some sound advice.
Hang on in there.
