Been to urologist. Don't know what to think tbh. I didn't do a flow test or have ultrasound. He asked the questions of when my urinary symptoms had begun and I told him 6 weeks ago after a week of extreme stress. Also turns out I'd mis-heard GPs PSA of 7.3 - it is 7.9! This freaked me out, but urologist seemed less concerned by the .6 differential. To me, it felt like a mountainous rise.
Anyway, he then did a DRE, which felt more uncomfortable than GP doing it. GP has said "smooth" and slightly enlarged - urologist said it felt completely normal. Why symptoms of BPH though I asked? Didn't really hear his answer. Then I had to do another urine sample, followed by another f...ing PSA. I had googled that a PSA after a DRE can lead to a higher reading, but I forgot to ask the urologist this.
I then pressed him about my chances of Pca (stupid question, but I was bound to ask). "I'd say about 80/20 in your favour". What? Where did he pluck a stat like that from? I guess I asked for it though. Felt a bit like the odds on Harry Kane scoring the first goal at the next Euros.
Anyway, I have mp/MRI coming next week sometime, at which point he said if it was clear, we would wait 3 months and check PSA.
None of this did anything other than lead me to my diapezam and more confusion about the whole bloody thing.
