    What does the stage pT3a for prostate cancer really mean?

    T3: The tumor extends through the prostate capsule (into the tissue just outside the prostate on one side).

    T3a: The tumor extends through the prostate capsule either unilaterally (on one side) or bilaterally (on both sides of the prostate) or has spread to the neck of the bladder.
    pT3a -- Tumor extends beyond the prostate
