I've been taking the saw palmetto supplement Prostate 5XL.
As posted in my other thread,a recent MRI shows two hot spots in my Prostate.I'm told it could be inflammation or cancer.In two weeks I'm going in for a MRI needle biopsy.
I'm 60 years of age this month.
With my PSA rising I have a bad feeling. The last 4-5 years with a couple of yearly tests and then every 4 months or so.The 4.7 to 4.9 was a two month.
4.0 Yes went down once somehow.
4.9 and the last a couple of weeks ago was 5.6.Scary.
I do have a enlarged prostate(BPH) not too enlarged at 39.Very minimal BPH symptoms.Although,a bit more lately.
Anyway,my question is considering I may have cancer spots,should I continue taking the saw palmetto supplement?
Just taking a shot with you guys because i can't find any info online.
Another question please.Is a MRI needle biopsy very painful?I don't think the area will be numbed.
