My grandfather has recently get some test and it detected prostate cancer. In further reports the gleason score is 8 with serum psa 13.4 ng/ml. Can this be diagnosed?

Cancers with gleason scores of 8 to 10 may be called poorly differentiated or high-grade. These cancers are likely to grow and spread more quickly, although a cancer with a gleason score of 9-10 is twice as likely to grow and spread quickly as a cancer with a gleason score of 8.
