I was wondering whether any of you have information on the acceptable level of increasing PSA over time.
I was diagnosed with low-level 3+3 in early SEP this year. I had two measurements prior to the biopsy (PSA 6.3 JUL 2015 / 6.89 AUG 2015) and one early this month (8.8 OCT 2015).
I would have thought that an increase at such levels and in such a short timescale would be worrying. I saw the oncologist on Monday and applied to take part in a trial of MR guided focused ultrasound to treat early stage prostate cancer. In order to qualify, the PSA level should be 10 or below.
Being dependent on the UK National Health Service, I was afraid that I may breach the acceptable PSA levels by the time my application has passed through the bureaucracy.
What are your thoughts?
