My bf was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, and we requested the medical records because we can't get in for an in-person counsel until the 9th.
History is had a PSA of 3.7 up from 3.4 year before, Gleason is 3+3, 10 biopsies, one shows 5% cancerous.
Anyway, my question, is in the medical report from the date of biopsy, it says "The prostate is 53 gm in total size. Predicted PSA is 6.3. PSA density is .07."
What exactly is "predicted PSA" and "PSA density."??
I have these on list of questions to ask doctor when we go for consult, but thought someone here could clue me in?
