My PSA reading was 12 and following a DRE and MRI scan I have had a biopsy. I am 57 and had no signs of a problem prior to a urine (and prostate) infection in October which resulted in the PSA test. My prostate is not (as I understand it) enlarged Height 30 Volume 27.8.
I have carried out research on line and to be honest this has created a lot of anxiety.
Two days after my biopsy I started to get pain in the small of my back and when sleeping get pain in both hips, the pain in my back in constant throughout the day. The MRI scan did show that the suspicion of cancer was confined to my prostate “bilaterally abornmal areas” however since the start of the back and hip pain I have started to get concerned that if I have prostate cancer that it may have spread.
Should I contact my urology centre to advise of the back and hip pain while waiting for the results? The biopsy was taken on 18th December.
Thank you for reading and if you have any experience that is relevant I would be grateful to hear from you.
