The Gleason Score is very important in predicting the behavior of a prostate cancer.  Still, other factors are also important such as:

  • The PSA Level
  • Findings on a rectal exam
  • How much of each core is made up of cancer
  • The number of cores that contain cancer
  • Whether cancer was found in both sides of the prostate
  • Whether the cancer has spread outside the prostate

Early detection saved my life.  More men need to know about their risk, and their opportunities to get screened.
