In April of '06 my doctor said "Cancer" without the smile. Mine was a very aggresive form (Gleason scale was 9). Only surgery to remove it was the only plan.

I had no symptoms; no pain; no idea. I would be dead by now.

I wil never have another erection. I leak a little urine now and then, but I am cancer free. I can only imagine how many men have this cancer and are ashamed to get checked.

Heads up fellow PCa warrior, gleason 9 is worrisome level grade of PCa. Long term you have to monitor psa levels, you cannot verify that you are cured is the actual truth, even if surgeon says clear margins and lymphnodes 'appeared clear' it is not an actual guarantee. Unfortunately there are some failures in surgery that are way down the line at 9-10 yrs., and those patients assumed they were cured.
It is a bizarre disease and has alot of parameters, there are 18 variant types of PCa even, and not all of them are equals in comparison. I wish you do well enough to be cured, just be vigilant and monitor psa levels, you do not want to see over .1 psa levels post surgery (after say 4-5 months).
