Prostate Cancer at 53

I was diagnosed in June with Gleason score intermediate borderline high. I am having robotic surgery today to remove prostate. Dr is going to try to spare nerves, says operation will take four hours. Been a huge emotional drain and now more and more scared as time nears closer. I have heard comments “it’s only prostate cancer, no big deal”. I don’t understand how people can say that. It is Cancer and extremely scary and life changing. Praying that all goes well this afternoon.
