Hi all, not really sure if I'm in the right group for this but here goes:
Most of this is in my bio, I'm 67 & was diagnosed end of last month. mpMRI showed level 4 lesion on left side. TRUS biopsy results Gleason 3+3 left side, 4+5 right 6 cores,9mm core volume, 60%overall volume with PNI (?). All treatment options available.
Had a full bone scan last Friday, after which the Consultant requested additional neck XRays.
1st meeting with Specialist Nurse this morning - I actually know her from my spinal treatments at same hospital. She looked at the bone scan results & it seems OK, apart from my neck, which is showing "areas of concern" at this point RP/RARP are off the table & an urgent MRI is being booked (should be next week).
To give some context, I have had a degenerative spinal disorder affecting both my lower back and especially my neck for a number of years, so I'm wondering if the crumbling bits of my neck & any possible calcification is being interpreted as a tumor. Or is it likely that a cancer can spread from the Prostate ONLY to the neck?
Sorry for rambling on but I'm a bit concerned.
