In brief: Once is enough but..

It needs to be done by an expert.
There can be significant disagreement on gleasonl scoring and a prostate specific pathologist should be seen. Remember, the srugeon told you, you have cancer, but who told the surgeon. Always get a 2nd opinion on pathology.

In brief: Once by your doctor

The gleason score is determined at time of removal of the prostate tissue.
It helps determine the initial treatment and prognosis. It is not a test that is repeated on any kind of routine schedule.
