Hi all, quick update,
Had my scan results today...
Bone scan - looks ok but there's an area on left side of my skull that looks suspect, said unlikely to be cancer related and maybe old trauma but getting scan to confirm.
CT scan - chest and organs look fine
MRI scan - confirmed I'm stage T3b in seminal vesicles and local lymph nodes.
Also said that there was some inflammation in my mesorectal lymph nodes but not enough to be suspect or to upgrade my cancer to T4. Truth is they aren't sure but are giving it the benefit of the doubt and testing me as T3b. Has anyone had any experience of PC spreading to those specific lymph nodes? Also, is there anything else that could cause this inflammation? Biopsies, hemorrhoids?
Due to stage, size and spread of tumor, potential treatment 1) quickly start hormone therapy then an aggressive course of radiotherapy. 2) Surgery discussed due to my age although the surgeon stated that it would be very unlikely to cure all the cells even if surgery went well and I'd then require the RT anyway.
Any inputs and advice welcomed.
