I thought I was about to start exploring the genomics of my Gleason 6 prostate cancer, which was diagnosed in late 2010.
But then I ran into a couple setbacks.
First off, my new urologist, Brian Helfand, MD, PhD, asked me to obtain the slides from my biopsy.
Easier said than done.
I called the office of my first urologist, the one who wanted to rush me into a prostatectomy. I was informed that the office had no record of my ever having been seen there for prostate cancer.
