I Am worrying a lot. I am 60. My dad had prostate cancer, his brother died from it. My mum had breast cancer, her brother died from prostate cancer. I was diagnosed with an enlarged prostate around 10 years ago. I had the expected urinary symptoms but psa was ”normal” . Because of this l have been relaxed about symptoms - which persist
I had psa 5.5 in November, followed by 5.7 in December, abnormal DRE Followed by MRI and TRUS biopsy. I am awaiting the results of these
When I look at my previous PSA. in 2017 it was 3.7.
So, I am awaiting my results. I know from listening that my prostate is 27cc (I dont think that’s enlarged anymore). So i think the cause of my symptoms is likely to be nasty.
I was due for two knee replacements this year, but I’m guessing things might change.
I think i just need to wait and see but i would appreciate any thoughts or advice.
