Welcome to our little group. There is no such thing as a dumb question here. I am sorry to see that the tumour is now in your hip but HT should hopefully make a dent in that. The numbers you posted would be considered normal for a man your age, especially one diagnosed with an enlarged prostate. The increase from 2.6 to 4.6 in one year would normally be a cause for concern but the enlargement may well have coloured your docs view. It is unusual to have metastases at such a relatively low PSA level but not unknown. Here's to the HT having the desired effect and knocking the tumour down.
Kind regards,
