I'm 61 yo man and 4 years ago my prostate was removed with nerve sparing Da Vinci surgery (PSA=5.01). While my biopsy Gleason was 6, it was upgraded to 7 (3+4) after histology, and the outcome was PT2c (cancer inside the gland), and no further treatment necessary. However, at subsequent follow-up, my PSA exhibited steady slow growth:
after 1 month of surgery PSA= 0.00
after 1 year 0.01
after 2 years 0.02
after 3 years 0.03
after 4 years (now) 0.05
My urologist says no to be concerned, while the radiotherapist I've contacted suggests immediate RT salvage treatment in order to have the best benefit.
I'm rather confused. Can anyone help me?
