In June I had an episode of epididymitis - a real ball ache. At the time the urologist said he may as well do a DRE, found some enlargement, and requested a PSA. This was raised and led to an MRI which revealed a couple of intracapsular nodules. Then had a transrectal biopsy this has shown a Gleason score of 3+4. Waiting to discuss treatment options.
I should add that I also have significant diverticular disease and am waiting on a possible Anterior Resection for that.
Would also like to add that although the hospital information leaflet regarding after effects of biopsy mentioned "blood in the semen" this was a gross understatement; one week after biopsy it looked like blackcurrant syrup, and if it had occurred on white bed sheets it would have produced a scene worthy of The Exorcist.
I'll return when I know more.
