And that's what it is.
You've done your part by choosing to seek treatment. Once the cancer is diagnosed, operated, graded, and staged, it is a waiting game. The large majority of common papillary carcinomas confined to the gland do not spread. Almost all anaplastic carcinomas spread and kill. Your physician must talk frankly with you about this. Good luck, and be strong.
