I need a bit of advice about a recent blood test result regarding PSA. It came back with a result of 5.9ng/mL (and a free PSA reading of 14%.)
The complication for me is that I live in Spain, and although my GP speaks better English than I do Spanish it is difficult sometime to communicate effectively.
Although she highlighted the result she didn't seem particularly concerned, and I left the consultation with the impression that the reading was nothing out of the ordinary. She seemed more concerned with me loosing weight. She asked me to return in six months to re run the test.
Since then I have obviously read up on the issue and found that in Spain and the US. a reading above 4 is considered suspicious ( 3 in the U.K.). I realize from the reading I have done that the PSA marker is not particularly exact in determining any outcome and that it is only the first indicator, but I was wondering if It is considered usual to wait six months.
Incidentally I had a blood test at the end of 2013 and the result was 1.07.
Any advice would be appreciated.
