My last PSA reading was on February 15, 2013 and it was 3.9
Biopsy done on June 19, 2013 showing Cancer in 5 of 12 cores, Gleason 6 (3+3). Did not have PSA reading done at same time of Biopsy.
Just had another PSA reading as of Aug 3, 2013: It was 4.5
I am still researching treatment options and wanted to know if this jump in PSA means anything or not since I have my biopsy results already and know I have cancer. I am only 6 weeks out from the Biopsy so could that have elevated it?
Just want to be sure I still have time to research my options and not take immediate treatment action.
