Male 55 healthy/active prostate cancer, scheduled for rp, psa 6.5 biopsies 6of8 pos 2aggessive, gleason 7. Are there other options to consider other than surg. Ct and bone scan clear. ?
Yes but: Alternatives are external beam radiation and radiation seeds (brachytherapy). At your age, conservative (watching) isn't advised.

Had colonscopy done, notes say small AC lesion near the cecum. Had CT scan, waiting for results. Biopsy was not done. Colonscopy 2013 was clear. Idea?
Polypoid lesion: If on colonoscopy a small lesion noted in the ascending colon not seen previously I suspect a small polypoid growth noted. If base not on a stalk, bx might have been held off for possibility that bx could lead to performation. If small such lesions hard to define on scan.

12 years post op rny, iron 20 & vitamin d at 10. Seeing a new dr that hasn't worked with deficient gastric bypass, is 325ferrous 3x and 2000d 1x okay?
Nutrition!: A gastric bypass is a very complex nutrition situation. If your physician has not dealt with it much i would suggest asking for a referral to a nutritionist or a bariatric center. That being said, the dosage of iron is fda approved treatment for iron deficiency, and the vitamin d is a reasonable amount. You have many nutrient levels that should be monitored and carefully watched! ...Read more

It's ok: Two ct scans in any period of time is well within safe limits of radiation exposure.
