As a side note to this. If they found it from a PSA test and you are under 50, why did you have the test done?
Thank goodness for my PCP.
I was tested for T, and it was low, when I was 47. I was on a statin too so I went to the doctor 2x a year already. I told him about
my family history as well.
He prescribed me a shot for T, and I guess he got a baseline PSA (2.5). I was supposed to come back in three months to have blood work, but I was feeling great and waited 10 months. He came in the room looking like he'd seen a ghost and said, "Your PSA is up to 4.6. You were supposed to come in six months ago, why didn't you?"
He then said, "I need to get you to see a urologist".
