Age 71 - New to this forum.
January 18 - minor problem - having to urinate every couple of hours. GP checked prostate and found no abnormalities. Took blood and found PSA levels high. Repeat blood tests 3 weeks later...,PSA level was higher still, currently level is 24.6ug/l. GP initiated urgent referral to consultant in March. Seen by consultant in mid-May who confirmed GP diagnosis that nothing untoward regarding size/shape of prostate. Consultant recommended urgent mpMRI. Prescribed a beta-blocker that would assist in easing urination issue. In early July, Radiology Dept at NHS gave me a waiting period of 20+ weeks for the scan, but no guarantee!!! Having already been in the system since February, it now being July..., decided only way to get this back on track would be to go private. Now awaiting results from scan I had last week. Waiting time for private scan - two days! Cost..., won't go into that!! Currently awaiting report which is due early this week, which will be passed to my GP and Consultant who unfortunately is on vacation until early August!
Would be interested in hearing from anyone who has had PSA levels like this and what the outcome was?
