PROSTATE CANCER RESEARCH INSTITUTE
January 1, 2013

I called their hotline in 2006 and spoke with Harry (now deceased) who stressed how young men with prostate cancer need to get their surgery done soon with a Dr who has done more than 150 DaVinci robotic prostatectomies.
At age 43, my disease turned out to be Gleason 3+3 stage 2C with lymphatic vessel involvement and a PSA of 3.9. After immediate surgery, the PSA was under 0.01 for 2 years. The cancer is back now with a PSA of 0.013, but I am told my low Gleason 3+3 means my cancer is unlikely to metastasize or kill me.
My surgeon said I would have died at age 45 (I am now 49) if I had not had treatment.
