My hubby was diagnosed with prostate cancer this week.
He had PSA of 6.9 in September (aged 66). He was sent for a specialist MRI scan followed by a targeted biopsy under general
Of 17 samples 12 were clear the rest a mix of 6 and 7. He was given a Gleason score of 7 (3+4). He was told that it is localised.
The treatment options discussed were active surveillance, key hole surgery and radiotherapy
Initial thoughts are active surveillance and revisit every three months after PSA tests
Reading through posts on here today many mention bone scans. This has not been suggested in our case, is this because it is considered localised?
All very new so any views appreciated re choice of options etc
