I would go for the biopsy.
In Ontario where I live, if I get my PSA done at my regular lab it costs $50 a pop even when required every 3 months after surgery.
However, if I go back to the hospital for blood testing, the PSA is done for free. Never knew that before the surgery.
Worth the extra 10 minute drive over the hospital every 3 months.
Let us know how things go with you.
Biopsy: May 09 showed 2 of 12 cores positive for prostate cancer -- 1 at 5% and 1 at 25%. Cancer indicated as non aggressive. Gleason Score: 3+3.
RRP on Oct 23/09 in London, Ontario. Excellent surgeon.
7 Weeks Post Op - The fears I had about bad things about the operation and recovery did not materialise except of course ED!!. Otherwise, everything went very smoothly. Incontinence not a problem. Wear a pad when out just in case. Pain was never a problem.
First followup PSA and Visit: Feb 11/10 - 0.0.
Next PSA May
Next doctor's visit in 6 months
