Certainly suggests a visit to your urologist. When was biopsy done? It could be bleeding from that procedure. The problem with the Gleason score is that it doesn't reflect the aggressiveness of the tumor...once again in that gray zone of what to do? Read the NYTimes articles on Prostate Cancer that appeared some two years ago and the book entitled..."The Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers...." good luck.....
Bone scan will almost always be negative until well into the disease--Years !

Thank you for your reply. The biopsy was done about 3 weeks ago and had the bone scan last week. The blood in the semen was about a year or so ago and I was told at that time it wasn't anything to worry about. I'm opting for radiation.
