I'm 59 and was diagnosed two months ago with a PSA of 7.7 and Gleason of 3 plus 4 with two positive cores and low volume (5%) I have been researching options for the last few months deciding between surgery and radiation. Just had another PSA and it jumped to 13.9 after just four months where before it had gone from 5.4 to 7.7 over 8 years. My urologist wasn't too concerned other than to say I wasn't a candidate for AS. I'm kind of freaking out now thinking maybe I've waited too long and feel like I need to do whichever I can get scheduled first between radiation and surgery.
