Q: Rising PSA test Levels Without Symptoms and Normal Biopsy, What causing the climb in numbers?

My fiancé’s last results over a span of 3 years (maybe a little longer) have gone from 2 to 8. He’s had a ultrasound and a biopsy and both were negative. He doesn’t have any symptoms. He’s 52.

His Dr. is recommending the more invasive biopsy and told him if it’s cancer then he’d have to have his prostate removed. Aren’t there treatments to try before something that drastic?

Could something else be causing the climb in numbers?

Answer:

By taking into account the TPSA, FPSA, PSA Ratio, Age, rectal enlargement, we can deduce the High Grade Prostate Cancer Risk which about 2.7% and Prostate Cancer Risk is about 6.7%.

Answer:

Since the Prostate Antigen test result gives an approximation of the state of the prostate, other factors such as age, race and other test results have been included to make the prediction of prostate cancer from the test results more realistic and reliable in the early diagnosis of prostate enlargement patients.

According to the given data, the High Grade Prostate Cancer Risk for you is 32%, and the Prostate Cancer Risk is about 54.8%. That is why I told you that it is necessary to mention other elements to make the prediction of prostate cancer more expressive of your condition.
