The Gleason Score

THE GLEASON SCORE

Dr. Samadi explains the Gleason Score. It's based on a scale of 1 to 10. A biopsy indicates irregularities and patterns in the prostate cells. The lowest number is 2; the highest is 10. A score of 2-6 indicates low cancer; 8, 9 or 10 indicate high risk. Gleason 7 is a moderate risk. But Gleason alone is not a clear indicator without a total prostate removal to ascertain stage and type of cancer.
