Hi doctor,

Here are the results of a prostate biopsy. What do you think of the results? Do you recommend surgery or chemotherapy for a 71 year old?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The prostate biopsy report is suggestive of high grade prostate adenocarcinoma.
  • So, the recommended treatment would be either a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy or radiotherapy in the form of IMRT (intensity-modulated radiation therapy).
  • No role for chemotherapy as a primary treatment. You should get a bone scan done to rule out pelvic metastases.
