We just got rid of one depressive over the weekend who thought he had cancer but did not. Then you come along!
You may or may not have cancer as other things can cause a raised PSA, but obviously be guided by your urology team. I am sure your appointment will come through very soon.
If anything untoward is suspected, do request an mpMRI scan before any biopsy, as that is the gold standard. Sometimes in some hospitals it happens the other way round, which is not best practice.
If as it appears, you have an analytical mind, you might like to check the morbidity rates for prostate cancer vs. lung, liver or pancreatic cancer. Might make you slightly less depressed?
And as for indignity, I suppose one hairy puckered ar**hole looks much the same as another to a doctor. If you do have a problem you can look forward to more of the same!😉
Best of luck for the future.
