I know next to nothing about prostate cancer. My short and quick story:
very low but rising PSA-- 0, .5, .8, .6 over the last 3 years, the .6 was a month later re-do when it began rising, so the last one fell.
my doc felt something subtle on digital exam. he's conservative and sent me to a urologist.
went to urologist today, same result on digital exam.
He wants me to get a biopsy.
QUESTION: does this make sense? from my 1 hour reading on the internet, it looks like even if the biopsy comes back bad, there is a ton of countervailing advice. Am I simply going to enter the twighlight zone if I do this, or does it make sense to know whats up.
Any insights would be greatly welcomed. Thanks a lot.
