I am 55 years old in good physical condition and no parents, brothers or cousins with prostate cancer.
Last February I taked my very first PSA test, the result was 12 ng / ml
(I did not know what was the psa it is my doctor who prescribed it)
A second PSA a month later after antibiotic came with the result of 13 ng / ml.
I googled what all those results means and it scared me a lot.
The things become serious so I was directed to a urologist.
He recommended an mri before the biopsy: 3 weeks later the mri came back clear
except a lesion pirads 3 (more or less 1 cm in the mid base left peripheral zone) and some chronic prostatitis.
In April my first biopsy: 16 classics samples were taken plus 3 in the suspected mri area pirads3(10 left side and 9 right side)
Prostate size is 26cc and All 19 cores returned negative, no cancer not pin or highpin but again some inflammatory in the prostatic parenchyma .
No pain during the biopsy but i developped an acute prostatitis one week or a few days later :
urgency, difficulty and pain when/to urinate,fever,...blood in the urine for 6 weeks and
in semen for 2 months !!!!! (more much than average no?)
I was happy with the result and the urologist gave me an appointment in 6 months for a new psa test
So two weeks ago again psa test with the hope that it drops but it came back with 39 ng / ml !!!!!
I was in shock and again waiting for the next mri the urologist prescribed me another 3 weeks of antibiotics
Now I dont feel any symptoms of prostatitis or chronic prostatitis but i know that prostatitis
may be asymptomatic
What is your opinion what should i do ?
Is it possible that the biopsy aggravates the inflammation of the prostate for several months?
