    PrĂ³stata biopsy

    My urologist wants to take a biopsy to determine My present Gleason status after My first biopsy 9 months ago in Colombia. Gleason was 3+3=6. Right after this he wants to start radiotherapy. 1.

    Serious sinus issues

    I've had a lymph node that's swollen on the back of my neck for about 7 years but nothing serious came about with it. It's about the size of a chocolate chip, and my doctor said not to worry about it. However, twice this year, I've had serious sinus pain that prevents me from sleeping. One time was in January, and the other is right now. When I researched this, I was led to think I have sinus cancer, but it's probably not. Does anyone have insight to my issue?

    Skin Cancer Question

    I just had a mole removed & stitched by a plastic surgeon. It was not cancerous. If it had been, would they have removed it in a different way? It doesn't seem like they could cut any deeper than they already did.
