I have studied this disease intensively on a daily basis since my diagnosis three and a half years ago, and the first mention I have heard of ‘free PSA’ is today. So no wonder GPs, who in my experience have limited knowledge of what they call PCa, have never heard of it either!
Free PSA tests are what you get from your GP! Don’t waste your time and money on any more postal thumb-prick tests.
You will have to wait ten days until your telephone conversation with the Consultant, and bear in mind Covid did not really impact on the urology department. My own surgeon had ops up to 80% of the pre Covid level at the height of the pandemic.
If they think there is any suspicion of PCa, look forward to loads more tests, scans and more waiting, so expect several months before you get a definite diagnosis and treatment plan. That should not be a problem as most prostate cancers are very slow growing.
Best of luck.
