Was diagnosed less then 2 weeks ago it PC.
PSA 2006 4.3
PSA 2007 5.8
PSA 7/2008 12.3
PSA 9/2008 14.9
Had 1st biopsy 9/7 Neg
Had 2nd biopsy 8/8 PIN + plus 4 "suspicious" areas
Had 3rd biopsy 9/8 Positive, had 2 areas, 4+3=7 and 3+4 = 7
All 7 cores tested positive with 60-80% cancer
Last week, had Bone Scan(s) and mutiple CT, awaiting results and
final consultation with doctor.
His thinking is that this is pretty aggressive, suggesting conventional surgery, non-
robotic, and min. of 40 RT treatments. Wants to operate 3 - 4 weeks from now.
My PSA doubling was very fast. Any comments or similar cases to mine.
Oops, I am 56 years old, had first PSA done at age 50, was over 4.
No known PC in family history, least none diagnosed.
