Hi, It is strange to have 2 tests the same result. I had 2 tests within a week at initial diagnosis and they were 0.01 different, the last one lower as I'd been very well behaved I think. It's a very small change granted but after a month I'd think it'd be more than that. If you could go another month unchanged and then another it would look promising.
I'm not sure about this, but the bit left behind doesn't need to be cancerous. 0.164 is about 5% of normal and higher than you'd expect but nothing is certain.
Also whether 0.1 or 0.2 are significant seems to be another rough guideline. I'd be worried if my psa was rising reasonably quickly if it was much less than 0.2. If went up by 0.1 every year I'd be worried but then think I could last 30 years at that rate. Rate of increase is important, and doubling often important.
One thing to note is take the tests at the same place as fractional differences are more likely. I'd be pushing for a test after 1 month and as said above be looking at contingency.
All the best, Peter
p.s. I've just read Lyn's new comments and haven't factored them in. I try to think of the better outcomes although I'm one of the world's worst worriers.
