I'm interested to hear any similar experiences people may have had to me, and any advice people can give. Particularly as I'm seeing the urologist this Thursday.
I'm 55 and so far my story is:
PSA test of 5.1, referred to urologist
DRE which showed that my prostate was enlarged and felt irregular.
MRI showed suspicious “charcoaling” around the edge of the prostate, which appears to show possible disease and a breach of the capsule at the top of the left apex.
TRUS biopsy that was negative.
PSA risen to 7.3.
Transperineal biopsy that was negative.
If the MRI had been clear I would probably not be posting on here, but the fact that it shows something irregular leaves me concerned that both biopsies may have missed something. Obviously I don't want them to find anything but I also don't want them to miss anything, so any advice would be appreciated.
