I just had another PSA test and this time it's 2.6 up from 0.54 almost four month ago which means an increase of almost 400%.
I had it double checked and it's not a mistake :-(
I understand that PSA can go up and down but 400% in such a short time???????
By the way, had a colonoscopy which showed "Radiation proctitis". My thyroid reading is up from 1.09 to 7.01 as well. Don't think there is a connection but thought I would mention it anyway.
I have an appointment with the radiation oncologist in a couple of weeks, is there anything I should be asking him?
Cheers, and thanks for any help/explanation you can give.
