Teal (Intermediate-Risk) is a generally low-grade condition associated with excellent long-term survival, though unlike Sky most men undergo treatment. In addition to all the usual Teal criteria of Gleason 7, PSA from 10-20 or palpable T2b disease, men who qualify for Low-Teal must have only one of these elements. In addition, the Gleason score must be 3+4=7 not 4+3=7, the amount of Grade 4 per the pathology report must be under 20 percent. In addition, no more than two biopsy cores can contain cancer. Many men with Low-Teal can be managed like Sky, that is with active surveillance. The criteria for Basic-Teal (also known as favorable Intermediate-Risk) is like Low-Teal except for having three to six biopsy core containing cancer. High-Teal, also known as unfavorable Intermediate-Risk, is defined by having two or more of the usual Teal criteria or more than 6 biopsy cores that contain cancer.
