My husband just had new scans done and it mentioned something about 2 new foci at left base of skull and then now sites of abnormal uptake in several ribs and scapulae and mannubrium and thoracic and lumbar spine besides the pelvic area. His PSA rose from 373 the end of April to 657 on May 30th.So far he's had no bone pain whatsoever thank goodness. Does anyone here know exactly what this all means? It's all so confusing. I'm most worried about it mentioning the skull and is it possible to spread into his brain next? He just had sipulucel-T Provenge treatments that ended on April 15th. He's scheduled to get a port and start Jevtana chemotherapy next Thurs. He had docetaxel 7 treatments from Dec. 2016 to April 2017 and then he had Zytiga from Aug. 2017 to Feb. 2018 because it quit working and PSA has been continually rising since then. Please any advice anyone out there has would be greatly appreciated. His doctor doesn't like to mention any time frame.
