I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. For those in the know it is t2a, gleason 3+3, and psa 4.99. For those who do not know what that means,they found it early and it probably has not spread.I am to have surgery to remove the prostate on the 20th.

Getting the news you have cancer is never a good thing. It sounds like you caught it early and prostate cancer is one of the most survivable cancers with early detection.

As much as we macho men don't want to get checked, it really is key to survival.

Keep on folding.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in June of 2009. I don't remember the Gleason score but it was fairly aggressive and my psa was 10.1. I opted for radiation treatments for 9 weeks. 2 years later still doing good. My prayers are with you bro. You will beat this.

Good luck dude. There's a 200km bike ride coming up in the next month (in aid of a prostate cancer charity), maybe this is a sign I should do it...

All the best to you. You were wise to get it checked and not wait 2-3 years.

Beekeeper, you will beat this. Check in to robotic surgery if that becomes an option. My Dad had prostate cancer 2 yeas ago and had robotic done. It was a very quick recovery time and minimal side effects due to the precision with which the robot can work. The robot can get very close to some important nerves without hurting them.
