just found out after 5 yrs post radical surgery that my psa is 0.1, all post surgery psa tests were <0.1, pre surgery psa 14 age 51,post surgery gleason 7, both lobes positive, margins,nodes, bladder neck all negative, however there was perineural invasion. Uro dr says retest 3 mos to check doubling time, if changes to 0.2 would advise radiation of prostate bed.Questions why wait 3 mos to retest psa? Can the cancer spread through the nerves? will any tests show where the cancer is located? ie mri ct scan? If some prostate "normal" tissue was left behind can it regenerate to produce psa?
