Hello Colleen. I had my prostate removed September of 2019. Robotically! Awesome process! PSA level before surgery was 7.50. 3 months after surgery 2.50. Finished radiation treatments May 14th 2021. One month after radiation PSA is 3.28. Do we think this just to soon to check my numbers or should I be concerned?

Hi Candcman, and welcome. I can understand your concern about a rising PSA so soon after treatment. I'm not qualified to answer whether it is too soon to check your numbers yet. But I will uncategorically say that that is a good question to ask your oncologist or nurse manager. They are best equipped to tell you when to get tested. @kujhawk1978 @ken82 @dandl48 @ozment @semeon may have some advice and experience to share with you.

Candcman, are you able to contact your cancer care team through a patient portal?
