Got the sad news that a close relative has just been diagnosed with T2 PC with a gleason score of 4+5. The lesion is localised on one side of prostate only PSA is at 6, but now lymphocyte count slightly high (most recently)
The biopsy was taken one month ago, follow up was only today, this is three mlnths after bump was noticed by the GP.
My concern is that the treatment plan is moving too slow because the plan now is to have a PET and start hormone therapy immediately with another follow up in 4 weeks. At this point it will be the decision to treat date for the prostatectomy.
Can anyone advise? Is there a way of moving to a larger hospital trust that he may get surgey offered sooner? How would we go about doing this? Finally, can anyone recommend surgeons or trusts in London lr the Midlands via PM as we are all quite anxious with this news.
thank you for reading!
