Wow difference between G4 and G3 is surprising.

Explains why I had a large t3 tumour but a PSA of 4.8??

Doesn't explain why some high G tumours are low PSA producing?

It doesn't say anything in the extract but presumably almost all of the samples were adenocarcinoma?

A much higher PSA than can be accounted for from biopsy results can set alarm bells ringing. That was my case: biopsy G3 with a tiny amount of G4, but a PSA of 32. Conclusion: a strong suspicion of undetectable spread ("micro mets"). Recommendation: whole pelvic RT to zap said postulated but unseen nasties.
