I know that this is a survivors network, but I would appreciate any help anyone might give. My husband, over the past 1 1/2 yrs. has been sent to a Urologist for elevated PSA ( 3.5 then 4.5 then back to 3.5). He has been on medication for urine flow for about a year. Last month he had severe blood in the urnine. He had CT scan and cystoscopy. Results: enlarged prostate pressing on urethra. Suggestion: stronger medicine or clipping prostate from around urethra. He went back yesterday with the intention of having the surgery. Dr. told him PSA was elevated again - to 5.5 and did "yet" another PSA. He goes back in two weeks for result and Dr. indicated possible biopsy. I have been reading about PSA results and am totally confused. Does anyone have any information that might be helpful as to what we should/can ecpect. Sorry for the length of this post.
