I have a dilemma which is I have been put on AS with a Gleason of 3+4 (<5% 4) in one area one side - I am OKish with this for the moment but my first 3month repeat PSA is due but I have a number of other conditions and nearly 70 so am advise to isolate as much as possible - basically Covid 19 will kill me if I get it.
What is the relative risk if just leaving the test for another 3 months when I might risk leaving despite not having any vaccine for probably 18 months.
i am due a repeat MRI in December to check changes. My PSA was 4.1 last December (an increase from 2.3 18 months earlier and 1.9 18 months before that)
I know it’s a balance of risk versus benefit - especially as if it has risen I am unlikely to get treatment immediately. But if course there is always the background worry it may become more aggressive and I don’t spot it in time.
input of what other think or those in similar position would be helpful
