My GP called me last Thursday evening to tell me she was referring me to a urologist.
I am 46yo, and my PSA had risen from 1.7 to 3.17 in 18 months. (There was no test conducted in between the two dates.) I have no record of prostate cancer in the family, although my father died of colon cancer at age 60 and my brother (15 years my senior) has already had a portion of his colon removed due to malignancies. I am also HIV+ (for nine years) but in good health. My appointment with the urologist is in about 48 hours from this writing.
I've spent part of the weekend reading about PSA testing, false positives, age considerations, PSA velocity, etc. I'm anxious to see the urologist, but not going "crazy" over what may come next.
I was just wondering if there was anyone else checking the forum who maight have had a similar experience and could share with me what to expect next.
