If I had this history and had not had a biopsy in the last 12 months, I'd get another biopsy soon
and continue to research the treatment choices in the meantime. (Surgery, Hormone Treatment, Seeds, External Beam, Proton Beam, & for those older and/or with certain comorbidities - watchful waiting.....) Some here have had similar distressing PSAs and finally found the cancer in special biopsies that take more than 24 samples (under general anesthesia).
If the biopsy is positive for prostrate cancer, you can "shop" for a physician without offending any current doctor while you seek a second opinion and consider your options.
Let us know your husband's age, etc. and our postings will be more relevant.
Here's hoping it is just benign prostrate enlargement!
