Biopsy and worried

Hi, 51 years old, recent PSA 4.8 and 1 month before 3.5 and MRI PI RAD result of 4 out of 5 and urologist said 7mm area of concern so having transperineal biopsy in a couple of days. Have a history of night sweats which prompted the orginal blood test and urine in blood but previous specialist said this was due to impact of long distance running but starting to wonder. Also, prob use the toilet more than most. So with all this a bit concerned, should I be?

Three out of four biopsies do find no cancer. In case it does, what you describe should end up in a curable situation.

Hi Steve,

Mate you should not be worring until you get the biopsy result, not sure how long your PSA was 3.5 so it may not mean to much & 7mm area could be something else. Your previous specialist might be right.

If they give you a Gleason Score then you will know & also know how mild or serious it is and what action option will be. Take it easy for the next few days. There are plenty of us out there to talk to what ever the diagnosis.

Good luck, take care. Cheers Charlie

Ditto what Charlie said. Take it easy. 

Never heard of night sweats being an indication of prostate cancer. Urine in blood is not an indication of prostate cancer if your psa is 4.8. Also, most men in their 50+ age go to the toilet more due to a benign condition called BPH. It comes with age.

Read an interesting statistic about prostate cancer recently. The average death rate for prostate cancer for all Gleason scores combined at 15 years is 4%.

Don’t worry, be happy.

Best
