Had an rectal biopsy and no cancerous cells found but PSA up from 4.4 to 7.1 in 3 months, so MRI performed. Strangely, PSA back to 4.1 after quarterly blood test after the MRI.
Just had my MRI results and shows PIRADS 5 lesion on the anterior left apex of the prostate gland. There is broad contact with the capsule suggesting radiological staged T3a disease; furthermore, there is a borderline right external ililcc node.
All very scary sounding stuff and now waiting an appointment for a transperineal template biopsy of the prostate under short general ananstheic as a day case.
My Dad, at 81, was diagnosed 6 months ago with prostate cancer (although he also had a bone scan and nothing wrong there) and has just undergone 20 days of radiotherapy so awaiting the results of his blood tests one month after treatment completed.
Presume if they find malignant cancer cells I will then be given options for treatment? Lets hope its not outside the prostate or in the bones. Scary times...
