It may read as a PiRAD 3 on a scale of 1 to 5.  If it's a PiRAD 3, it's cancer equivocal meaning that that lesion has a 50/50 chance of being something.  I wouldn't get too caught up with that now.  The biopsy will determine the diagnosis.  It does look like you are heading for the MRI guided biopsy.  I myself, have had 2 bx's with a few Gleason 3+3 or 6, low involvement percentages with each bx.  I have had 2 MRI's, the first with a PiRAD 3 and a 2 and a repeat MRI with no lesions.  I can tell you that they are looking for PiRAD 4's and 5's but all data needs to be taken together.  I have been on Active Survelliance (AS) for 2 years now.  There is not enough data to answer your question.  And if it was, it can be treated.  Do you have any PSA bloodwork results recently?

I did read my biopsy results today after telling the DR that the waiting is affecting me. I have been through esophageal caner in 2008.  My results on all 13 cores were no tumor including the lesion.  God is good and so are the people on this site. I used this site for myself and to help others when I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. I appreciate the help again thanks and God bless
