Since my most recent PSA in Feb indicating an elevated level of 6 from 3.4 a year before, I've researched Prostate cancer and contacted every known source for guidance. This site is fantastic with many helpfull members. I have a followup PSA test 30 days later indicating 5 which led to my urologist recommending a biopsy. I was not looking forward to the proceedure but needed to know the results. The biopsy took about
10 minutes and was less painful then expected and the results were back within days indicating no cancer
. The pathology report showed right biopsy: Mild Acute Prostatitis with chronic inflammation & left biopsy: Prostatic Tissue with mild chronic inflammation. My follow up appt. with urologist was cancelled since no cancer was found and I'm having PSA tests every 6 months. Since this was not identified as "bacterial" Prostatitis I'm assuming no treatment is required. I feel good just find myself urinating often and stream is medium so I guess all is well. I would be interested in knowing if anyone has any other opinions. Thanks for the great support.
