I was wondering if anyone had any advice.
My PSA went from 8 to 41 from February to September this year. A second test, a day later gave it as 35. Two days on from the second test I developed symptoms of prostatitis. I was prescribed a three week course of antibiotics. I had a second test done, 3 weeks later, and my PSA has dropped from 35/41 to 24.51 - so its still really high.
I no longer have the pain from the prostatitis, but I am still going to the loo all the time, despite taking alpha blockers. However, I also have BPH with a prostate volume of 109cc which would account also for this.
I had a 3T MRI done and there was no change in my prostate from the previous MRI, ( a year earlier) aside from a small 0.5cm lesion. However, I've read that 3T MRI's miss 20% of clinically significant cancer.
I have emailed my urologist and have requested a template fusion biopsy.
My question is am I worrying needlessly after the drop in my PSA?
Thanks for reading
