Twelve years since a radical pros, eleven years since radiation, PSA 3 to 6 in three months, diagnosis lung involvement. Any thoughts?

Hi,
I came across the following article that I hope will help you. The title is "Biochemical remission after resection of prostate cancer lung metastasis", and it appeared in the journal Urology volume 63, Issue 3 March 2004 584-585. It reports on a case at Stanford. Authors are Debby H. Chao a, John P. T. Higgins b and James D. Brooks

"We present a case of a solitary pulmonary recurrence of prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy that was resected, resulting in 12 years of biochemical remission without additional therapy...We are the first to report apparent curative resection of a prostate carcinoma metastatic to the lung. This observation suggests that the finding of a solitary metastatic lesion in the setting of prostate cancer does not necessarily mean that the patient has widely disseminated disease."
I hope this helps!

Since last, Right Lower Lung Lobe resected and 3cm nodule determined to be Lung Cancer (not protate) - second surgery determined additional 2mm nodules to be benign but entire lower lobe removed as a precautionary measure. Ten days since surgery (2nd) feeling confident. PSA still climbing
