Prostate Cancer Discussion

In preparation for your prostate cancer discussion, please bring with you, or arrange to send in advance, your pertinent medical records. These records should include:

  • Most recent PSA result
  • Pathology report from your prostate biopsy
  • Results from your most recent CT scan, bone scan and chest X-ray, if you’ve had them
  • List of current medications and medical problems
  • We would also like you to bring or send the pathology slides from your prostate biopsy.

The Washington University School of Medicine pathology department will re-read the pathology slides from your prostate biopsy and confirm the stage and grade of your cancer diagnosis. The slides must be provided to us by the patient — we are not able to request them on your behalf.
