• 3 Different Prostate Cancer Biospy Results.

    3 Different Prostate Cancer Biospy Results.

    My original biopsy taken last April which indicated Gleason scores involving 3 cores; two "6" and a "7" 4+3. @ 20%
    I requested a review by Sloan Kettering which upgraded the result to one core of a 3+4 "7".
    While I did not request any addition review on my slides, I received an invoice from John Hopkins. It seems my first Doc, not Sloan.. sent my slides to John Hopkins without my knowledge and has not informed me of results. Their assessment is one core at a much higher 4+5+9.
    Needless to say I am very upset and concerned. I left messages for Sloan.. but now what? I had seeds implanted last July 10th. Docs said I had a 95% cure rate.

      Thank you Barry...it's a good start. Looking for it to go below 1.00 within a year of the procedure.
