Cancer: Prostate Board Index

After surgery, your doctor could require several repeat PSA readings before attempting to logically gauge the situation, and what future approach can be considered.

He'll have to consider your full profile, eg:
whether there are three subsequent PSA rises,
PSA doubling time. For example a doubling time of less than 3 months is usually considered more serious.
pathology report, postive margins, gleason score,
residual tissue.

All of this can be discussed, and what timeframes and figures he has in mind.
