My father was detected to have prostate cancer, but they did not give any stage of his cancer. I am worried about his prognosis. How long he would survive? They have removed his testes and advised him to take Andro Block for life time. They used the term highly suspicious of prostate cancer. The Gleason score was given as 3+3, PSA 7.09. We do not have a family history of prostate cancer or any other cancer. Is it hereditary? I am attaching my father’s report here for your reference. Is there a chance for me to get cancer in the future? I have taken my PSA and it is 0.8. Should I regularly do PSA? I am 38 years old. All my tests, including DRE are normal. I do not have symptoms as such. Should I go for a biopsy?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I sympathize for the medical condition of your father.
