Cancer: Prostate Message Board

Cancer: Prostate Board Index


I wonder why you are so focus in the Finasteride effectiveness or its study indicating 50% lower reading factor. Any direction that Finasteride could take would not alter the positive conclusion of the increased PSA from your last test.
This increase is of concern and so it is the comment regarding prostate cancer in your family history. After Cipro a normal DRE and a proven PSA double increase in 10 months, the diagnosis is very indicative of the presence of cancer. This fact can be ruled out only with a biopsy.
Biopsy is an easy procedure done with localized anaesthesia on an out-patient basis. Surely it should be done in reliable institutions to avoid any infection.

I would suggest you to get a second opinion on your case the sonnest.

Wishing you peace of mind.
Welcome to the board.
