I’m 58 with family history of prostate cancer so have had regular PSA checks. My father’s brother died in his mid 50’s and four uncles on my mother’s side have cancer, all aged between 69 and 80, the eldest at stage 4. After 5 years hovering around 0.6, only going as high as 1.4 one year and then dropping back to 0.7 in 2019 my PSA has suddenly risen to 5.5. I have had none of the usual symptoms but I have recently had what I think was UTI or acute prostatitis (every symptom on NHS website except back pain including a tiny spot of blood and also a creamy discharge!)which took 2 lots of antibiotics to clear. PSA blood test was done a couple of weeks after finishing antibiotics. DRE also done, doctor said there was a small nodule which would warrant further investigation so has arranged an MRI and biopsy for this week. What has REALLY worried me is the doctor has asked for a repeat bone profile blood test as the first one was abnormally high. Googling hypercalcaemia would suggest bone metastases. Would that be possible with such a low PSA level? I’m worried out of my mind.
I would really appreciate any advice
