Brief Answer:
Hello, I need to look for your stage of disease

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I can understand your concern.

So all I can make out is that you are suffering from prostate cancer with a XXXXXXX score of 6. I need to know the details of serum PSA value and MRI scan of pelvis before I can give you definite information.

As of now, by biopsy, it looks like to be a low intermediate lesion and you will enjoy a great deal of life with treatment. Please provide the details of MRI and PSA so that I can assist you further...

Awaiting...

Thanks and regards

April 2017 high resolution MRI Prostate showed no tissue that was consistent with cancer.

Cancer not detectable w/ digital rectal exam as of end of July 2017.

Hello again. So as your psa is low and mri not showing any lesion, you fall in a low risk group. You just require psa evaluation once in 6 mth and biopsy once in an year. No tteatment required at this stage.
