Hello folks. Iam 57 and live in East Texas. My most recent psa is 1.8 and this was checked immediately after having a dre which I understand is not a good idea and can elevate the number. My psa was .9 when I was 51. My only symptom is frequent urination. I have to get up about
three times during the night. I had this done by a internal medicine doctor who said that they felt a very small nodule on my prostate and referred me to a Urologist. The Urologist confirmed that I indeed had a very subtle yet present nodule according to his report and scheduled me for a biospy. After doing a little research I learned that there was such a thing as a Power Color Doppler which would prelude the need for a biopsy. The problem is I cant find any place that does this in Texas or in my surrounding states. I do not like the idea of a biopsy and would much rather do this if possible. The idea of a biopsy gives me great anxiety. Can anyone help or advise me?
