Cancer: Prostate Message Board

Cancer: Prostate Board Index

My husband is 46. He has a history of problems with blood after urinating; he has had exams (scope) and CT scans and blood tests and his last PSA was 2 years ago and it was a .8.

Recently, he again had another episode of blood after urinating and went to the ER. He got a urine exam and it detected no blood. He expressed no pain. They did a CT scan and there were "bone islands" 14 mm on his iliac/hip bone. When went to the urologist the same day and the PA conducted a DRE and the prostate felt normal, no nodules, movable and not enlarged.

He is convinced he has metastatic prostate cancer. He suffers from extreme anxiety as a result. And, now he is reporting pain in his back and hip. However, it could be because of his anxiety. Does anyone know if one can have prostate cancer that has spread to the bone even though the prostate seems normal?

I need to do something to quell the anxiety. He is not able to function...any suggestions?

Any ideas or thoughts would be helpful. He will be getting a PSA exam on Monday 4/1. A CT with contrast on Tuesday and follow up with the urologist on Friday. I called the urologist to ask him this question but, he did not call back.
