I just had my fourth biopsy which was my second with Dr.Duke Bahn .
Anxiously waiting the results due to fact that this is first time he targeted
two new suspicious areas ,defined as areas of increased blood flow .I have been
on active surveillance for 8 years , with annual visit to Dr Bahn confirming the regular
PSA results , showing no PCa growth or progression of Gleason 6 in one core only .
My first visit with Dr Bahn was to validate an MRI with spectography
done by ,let me say a less than reputable Florida HIFU urologist .Dr Bahn sampled the
"suspicious " areas which came back negative .Every year since his color Doppler confirmed
that no blood flow was noted to the one tumour and therefore no concern and no biopsy!
Now , the index tumour remains dormant with no blood flow but there are two new areas
of concern .I strongly agree with many here, like JohnT ,who say Dr Bahn is the expert
in monitoring Pca with Color Doppler TRUS , which is far superior to saturation biopsy
