20yrs ago husband had radical prostatectomy . He refused any other treatment. we were told he was foolish and prognosis was 2yrs.  As I said that was 20yrs ago.  However is psa is know at 340.  Full body bone scan due on Tuesday. He appears to have no symptoms. Anyone ever come across another person like hubby. Thank You.

Unfortunately, having no symptoms is entirely normal, but a PSA of 340 is a strong indicator that the cancer has spread. The scan should show what's going on.

Best wishes,

Chris

My friend, now 87, had a PSA of 300 upon diagnosis five years ago with no symptoms. Following various hormone therapies his PSA is now 18. There are metastases around, but they don’t really trouble him apart from some pain in one hip.

The lucky bugger has had no side-effects from the HT either!

Best of luck.

Cheers, John.

If he refused treatment and has no symptoms why did he have a PSA test?
