My psa level increased from 4.2 at the end of 2012 to 6.6 twelve months later at the end of 2013. My doctor sent me to a urologist who ordered another psa test and that came back at 11.00. There was only 3 weeks between my 6.6 reading and this latest one at 11.00. The urologist thinks that this huge increase is unlikely to be a cancer and wants me to have another test in 4 weeks time,
Opinions please!!!
PSA velocity like you are describing is not a good thing. IMHO you need a biopsy or 3d MRI ASAP. Take care!
6.6 is high to begin with do you have BPH or prostatitis ,an infection would cause a rapid increase of psa, is there a reason your urologist made that statement. A rise from 6.6 to 11 in three weeks is unusual, did he say anything in regards to his initial examination. Regardless I would oppt for a biopsy to rule any chance of pc. Wish you well.
Thanks for that,Bob. I see the urologist next Wednesday to get the results from the blood test I had yesterday. Keeping fingers crossed.
