My husband passed away last year from prostate cancer. I now have a family friend who has been on "not-so active" active surveillance.
His PSA began rising at age 70, doubling time was 3-4 years. PSA was 7.7 in January at age 71, biopsy - one area of one core was "suspicious" for Gleason 3+4.
PSA in late September was 19. Doubling time of 7 months. He's returning for another biopsy with his urologist next week. I suggested that he go to Vanderbilt for his repeat biopsy and begin meeting with an oncologist. Does anyone have a recommendation for the best of the best in Nashville?
Thanks for any help you can give. It's a good feeling to be able to help someone else through this.
