I haven't been on this forum very much. I was diagnosed with PC in January,2011 with a PSA of 4.9. Had two biopsies that confirmed Gleason of 2+2=6 in 2 areas. Six months later had another biopsy which was the same. I was told to wait 6 months and return to PSA and exam. In Novenber, 2011 PSA jumped to 7.4, but DRE normal. I took 2 weeks of cipro and went back after Christmas, December 27 and PSA had come down to 6, so we biopsied again and found 1 more area 3+3=6 and 3+4=7. Doctor feels it is confined, but feels we needs to get it out as soon as possible.
February 1, 2011 LLB 6 (3+3)
April 1, 2011 (same as above)
December 28, 2011 LLB 6 (3+3)
Also on this last biopsy "Perineural invasion is present, new cancer was 1MM.
