Jeff K lives in Pennsylvania, USA. He was 57 when he was diagnosed in August, 2017. His initial PSA was 3.80 ng/ml, his Gleason Score was 6, and he was staged T1c. His choice of treatment was Undecided. Here is his story.
Hi I live in Pittsburgh, PA and just got the call from the Urologist a week ago. PSA has been rising the last 5 years from 2.2 to 2.4 to 3.0 and now 3.8. This acceleration concerned my PCP enough to refer me to Urologist. I have a meeting with him this week to discuss options. PCa was found in 2/12 cores, less than 5% of each core. Gleason score 3+3 in each. PSA tested twice in July 4.2 and then 3.8 a week later with Free PSA 21%. I am classifed as Stage 1. I also suffer from an enlarged prostate so not sure how that might enter into into my options. I will update after my meeting with him.
