I am a 52 year old male who has been on testosterone injections for 2 years now.
I have had ct scans and mri scans and I have just returned from my specialist who went over the results.
He said that it looks like I have a tumour on the left side of my prostrate.
He said at this stage it looks like its contained in the prostrate, and not travelled to any other organs I had a chest ct scan and a bladder systomeny a few months ago for other health issies and they were all clear
My psa was 1.5 then 3 then up to 6 in 6 months so they weren't concerned.I asked for further tests to be done and they weren't really wanting me to go as they said it wasn't necessary They said they would monitor my psa every 6 months
Being a bit brazen I said I would rather go for further tests .To cut a long story short I got the mri scan so I am waiting to go for the biopsy where they give me a local anesthetic .Sorry to rabbit on but He said if it is what he thinks I can go for the operation I have also decided to stop the injections as this is what feeds the tumour he said.
I know there are different circumstances and every person wants to go with different options my wife is very understanding and the sexual side doesn't bother us but is there different treatments available rather than total removal of the prostrate
this will probably been answered on the forums but everything is a bit burred with what he said I feel like I'm in a dream
thank you so much for reading this very long post
