I don't know if this will help or not, but my local urologist said I had a rough spot, he called it a "phlebus" for the past 10 years. I never heard of this term before, could not fnd it on the internet anywhere. Anyway, he never worried about until last year, when my PSA went from 1.9 to 2.85 in one year. First biopsy "suspicous for cancer for diagnostic" , second biopsy in 08/2008 showed early prostate Ca in 2/12 cores. I had robotic prostatecomy on 09/11/08. If the PSA doesn't change I think you are OK, if and when PSA elevates it's time for the biopsy, just keep on top of this issue, it may save your life someday....................
