i had a post prostatectomy PSA of 0.014. Over the space of 12 months, it steadily increased to 0.023. I paid for a PSMA scan and cancer was found in some nodes. I had subsequent radiotherapy and hormone therapy.
en your PSA, like mine, seems to be exhibiting steady rises so it needs to be watched. My oncologist warned me I could be wasting my money getting a PSMA scan because my PSA was so low, it was unlikely to pick anything up.
the other thing is that I had positive margins, extra capsular extension and so on. My oncologist always knew I was going to need subsequent treatment and so pressed ahead. All of this, as well as a rising PSA needs to be into account. We can’t see from your profile your staging and pathology.
based on my experience, I’d be asking to see the oncologist sooner rather than later.
