I just received the PSA result 6 months after cirurgy, and =0.05. The previous value , 3 months after cirurgy was 0.03 (same lab). In general, these are values still considered undetectable (below 0.1), but I´ve reading some information that indicates independently from the low values, the Doubling time faster than 10 months may indicate biochemical recurrence and early treatement. My Doctor does not consider this information as proven and so is just considering that the trigger for treatment is only when there is an absolute value and confirmed of PSA=0.2. I´m considering to have a second opinion from other Doctor.
Someone has already experienced this situation and has some information that can share.
