MRI Fusion Prostate Biopsy.
Hi, my name is Michael. I'll be 70 this Oct. My last PSA score was 24, ultra high and median score of 18 over the last 2 years. I had a pelvic MRI scan in February 2021 showing 5 growths on my prostate, 2 larger than the other 3. I definitely have to have what the urologists call a MRI fusion prostate biopsy on Oct 4th, I believe they put ultra sound scans over the previous MRI scans to detect a more true picture of the growths, and then using multiple needles to perform the biopsy. The anesthesiologist recommended a local sedative like you might have for a colonoscopy, I felt painful pinches or cutting off of the poleps back then after they said you won't felt a thing, bull. I am wondering if I should demand to be put out completely. I need to decide soon. Has anyone been through this particular procedure? Thanks.
