Grade of cancer

The GleasonA system used to assess the extent of abnormality of prostate cancer cells. system is a commonly used method for grading prostate cancerAbnormal, uncontrolled cell division resulting in a malignant tumour that may invade surrounding tissues or spread to distant parts of the body. cells based on what they look like under a microscope. The grade gives an indication of how aggressive the cancerAbnormal, uncontrolled cell division resulting in a malignant tumour that may invade surrounding tissues or spread to distant parts of the body. is - how quickly it may grow, or spread outside the prostate.

The pathologist examines the biopsyThe removal of a small sample of cells or tissue so that it may be examined under a microscope. The term may also refer to the tissue sample itself. samples and grades them according to how abnormal the cells have become. He then allocates a GleasonA system used to assess the extent of abnormality of prostate cancer cells. score between two and ten.

The biopsyThe removal of a small sample of cells or tissue so that it may be examined under a microscope. The term may also refer to the tissue sample itself. results showed a GleasonA system used to assess the extent of abnormality of prostate cancer cells. score of 6, indicating moderately aggressive cancerAbnormal, uncontrolled cell division resulting in a malignant tumour that may invade surrounding tissues or spread to distant parts of the body.. In some ways I was happy that a cause had been found - we knew what we were dealing with

The lower the GleasonA system used to assess the extent of abnormality of prostate cancer cells. score, the lower the grade of the cancerAbnormal, uncontrolled cell division resulting in a malignant tumour that may invade surrounding tissues or spread to distant parts of the body.:

  • Low-grade prostate cancerAbnormal, uncontrolled cell division resulting in a malignant tumour that may invade surrounding tissues or spread to distant parts of the body. has a GleasonA system used to assess the extent of abnormality of prostate cancer cells. score of between 2 and 6. It is likely to grow slowly and is less likely to spread
  • Intermediate-grade has a GleasonA system used to assess the extent of abnormality of prostate cancer cells. score of 7. The cancerAbnormal, uncontrolled cell division resulting in a malignant tumour that may invade surrounding tissues or spread to distant parts of the body. cells look less normal and are more likely to spread than low-grade cancerAbnormal, uncontrolled cell division resulting in a malignant tumour that may invade surrounding tissues or spread to distant parts of the body. cells
  • High-grade prostate cancerAbnormal, uncontrolled cell division resulting in a malignant tumour that may invade surrounding tissues or spread to distant parts of the body. has a GleasonA system used to assess the extent of abnormality of prostate cancer cells. score of between 8 and 10. These cancers are the most aggressive and most likely to spread.
