This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer.
There are only four rules:

  • No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
  • No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
  • No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
  • Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making

Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

Re: Transperineal Biopsy

Update: Tests from 8/3/2017 show PSA increased from 5.1 (Jan 2017) to 5.8 and free PSA went from 13% (Jan 2017) to 16%.

Per Dr request have appt with him 8/22 to discuss using the MP MRI from May 2017 and do transperineal biopsy as he is concerned the PSA continues to rise and free PSA is still too low.

Not sure why he wants to use the MRI from May 2017 since it showed "clean". I'm thinking Active Surveillance and wait until May 2018 and do another MRI and PSA tests then.

Thoughts?
