My Cancer Diagnosis

Jul 13, 2010

Last July I went for a general health exam, which included the usual blood tests. My PSA Test (Protein-Specific Antigen Test) came back high at 9.1, so a retest was scheduled. That test came back at 8.8, which is still too high, so a needle biopsy of the prostate was scheduled for August. Of the six sites biopsied, one came up with cancerous cells in two of the five fragments for a Gleason Grade of 4+3=7, a very bad grade. At a consultation in September, both the doctor and my wife wanted to immediately do surgery or radiation treatment, but I had something else in mind.
