3 days ago · PSA numbers: Questions about new treatments in Prostate Cancer

I received my latest PSA and it was 3.1. It went down from a 4.5. My GP gave me an antibiotic for thirty days and he believes I had inflammation. I saw him this week and his opinion is we test again in June. He did a digital and he said prostate was soft, nothing abnormal on lobes, and asymmetrical. My prostate has always been enlarged. He said no urologist worth their salt would do a biopsy at this point. He offered that I could have a second opinion of a urologist if I wanted. I’m headed to Florida end of month for three months and Cleveland clinic is within five minutes. I may consider seeing a urologist there??? We’ll see. Any suggestions?

Good luck. I haven’t been diagnosed yet, but I’ll see my dr next week to see next step. I maybe traveling to Cleveland clinic in Weston, Florida for treatment if I have what I suspect is prostate cancer.

What is a Gleason score and what does a six mean?

Will do. I go for another PSA tomorrow.

Thank you for the invite. I currently don’t know if I have prostate cancer, but my PSA has risen from 2.1 to 3.1 last year to 4.2 this year. My GP is suggesting a wait and see with blood test every six months. Is this normal and what would be next step. I’m almost 73 and blessed with good health. Thanx for any advice in advance.

I’m almost 73. My PSA had always been 2.1 and a year ago went to 3.1. This year it went to 4.2. I’ve always had an enlarged prostate and always had PSA and digital every year since my 50s. My Dr. is in a wait mode and monitor. Is that a good idea? Any suggestions or possible first steps to give me peace of mind? I’m headed to Florida and will be close to Cleveland clinic after holidays.
