Quote taken from Biopsy started by bronco on September 19, 2007

 

..... Thank you I maybe jumping the gun about action.

 

50 years old

6/6 PSA 1.2

6/7 PSA 1.2

9/10 PSA 1.2

DRE urologist found an abnormality has scheduled a biopsy this week at Northwestern in Chicago. Eight blocks from my house a new prostrate clinic and cancer center has opened, wen for a cunsult. The doctor agreed after a DRE, I should be biopsied and gave me litature on his STRP proceedure. All the studies suggest that the proceedure is less painful and more comprehensive. Just confused!!
