    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    Did everything right to no avail. Had digital exams for almost 20 years and PSA testing for ten. All was fine until last December. Have rare form of prostate cancer that forms in the ducts. Does not raise your PSA. Usually very advanced befor it is found. Stage 4, Gleason 8, T3aN1.

    Incontinence (cannot control urine)

    Side Effects

    About three weeks post surgery and leaking about 300 grams a day. (Have to weight it for a study the surgeon is doing.)
