What is the Life Expectancy of a Man With Prostate Cancer?

Margin positivity

If you are diagnosed with prostate cancer, there’s a high chance that your doctor will recommend taking the tumor out of your prostate. If this is a treatment option for you, they will remove cancer and remove a wide margin of surrounding tissue. Then, they will take the tissue to the lab and analyze the sample to see if there are any cancer cells in the margins. When you have cancer cells in the margins that apparently look normal on the outside, there’s a higher chance of the spread of cancer cells in other tissues.
