Pathology Second opinion?

PSA went from 1.6 to 3.08 in about 14 months, had a biospy which came back one out of twelve positive gleason 3+3=6.  Dr, did not seem concerned, wants to PSA test every three months and another biospy in a year.  I am wondering if I should get a second opinion on the biospy.  I don't n know where to go for that, right now I am feeling my way around in the dark.  Thanks.

In my view that's one too many but you have some time with the gleason of 6 and a moderate PSA.  Go hunting now, find out who's the best in your area for oncology specializing in prostate and start there.  Take any reports and srays and scans you have had done.  If the doc's reluctant, remember you paid for them and they are yours.
