Prostate Cancer

T1c Stage Treatement Options

03/29/2005

Question:

I have a PSA of 10 and a gleason score of 3+3. They say I am in stage T1c. What do you recommend I do?

Answer:

T1c is correct assuming you do not have a palpable abnormality on your prostate when it is examined.  There are varied treatment options.  I assume you are less than 70 and in good health.  Given those assumptions radical prostatectomy or radiation therapy are options and you should discuss them with your urologist.

 

I hope this information is helpful to you.
