As part of the Active Surveillance protocol that I am under, today I received the results from my third biopsy. There were six samples that were targeted using an MRI machine, and eleven that were random for a total of seventeen...............all were benign......I will be having another biopsy in two years, and at least a DRE and PSA in six months, an office visit. Last year there were 3 that three that were targeted and eleven that was random...all clean.....two yars ago in 3/09 when I was diagnosed, 2 of 12 were postive, 3+3=6 with less than 5 percent involvement...except for this PSA, all others were about the same at about 2.5.
Additionally this time, my PSA results were elevated. It was 3.9 versus my average of 2.5.....I did ride a bike the day before which may account fot the PSA rise....my doc focused 100 percent on biopsy ...and zero on the PSA.
