My Dad lived to 97 and died of a heart attack with prostate cancer and never had a PSA or biopsy and his cancer tumor was found at age 88 during turp surgery for urinary flow.
Now my Doc has put me on Active surveillance and wants to do repeated biopsies every year. This worries me because of scaring of the prostate that can make future treatment more complicated and most of all needle tracking that can spread the cancer to other parts of the prostate. I am 70 and found my Gleason 6 because of PSA testing and not Turp surgery at 88 and now I am looking at some 25 years of worry I hope!! Are we sick or what ????
Any comments on repeated biopsies and needle tracking.
