I received the PSA result today from a friend at the lab.
 
PSA: 0.5        Normals: 0.0 - 4.0
 
Now should we still persue the Free PSA, or would this be an indication that it is not Prostate Cancer?
 
Thank you,  Judy

I would say that you should feel relieved that his PSA is so low. There was one report I believe on this site or the Yananow site where a man had a PSA of 0.6 but had PC which was found when the urologist felt it on a DRE. I assume that David's urologist probably already did a DRE and felt nothing so you should be in good shape. Looks as if we need to say goodbye to you as you do not need to be here.

Good to hear some GREAT NEWS on here!!
 
Good for you guys. And now you have a baseline PSA for any future PSA tests that may be needed.
 
Are you still going to have a meeting with the urologist?  given his urinary problems etc. he might still need medication for an enlarged prostate? or figure out what to do to rule out any other problems with that issue.
 
But everything sounds wonderful! :)
