Hi! Had an escalating PSA starting middle part of last year. From 2.8 to 4.34 last month. 2 biopsies, 24 core samples later, still zero cancerous cells but lots of high grade PIN. J. Hopkin recommended a third one.
My urologist did a "saturated" biopsy, 30 samples! Got the news yesterday-hence my user name.
3 of the cores had 1% each cancerous cells with other "suspicious" tissue on some. I'm 45 years old, otherwise of good health. Pissed off, frustrated, confused, and really more worried about the side effects of the treatment than the treatment itself, (I think, it's part of the roller coaster of emotions and feelings after receiving the news). Prostatectomy seems ideal at this time, just because I want to get rid of this @3$% gland! Please give me your thoughts. ED, incontinence bothers me so much. I need to have a good process to guide my decision. Thank you everyone!
