Bill Mood and Barbara live in Maryland, USA. He was 54 when he was diagnosed in April, 2005. His initial PSA was 7.70 ng/ml, his Gleason Score was 7, and he was staged T1c. His choice of treatment was External Beam Radiation. Here is his story.

Hello I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in April 2005. During that time my PSA was 7.74 and my Gleason Score was 4+3 (left side) and 3+3 (right side). After reading a lot of articles for treatment I decided to get External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT)

My PSA readings and treatment were as follows.
