My radiation oncologist thinks my PSA level at .8 is too low for radiation treatment. It has doubled from .48 in 2010 to .80 in 2018. This trend alarms her (it was .70 in 2017). Her concern is that after radiation it will be difficult to measure a significant enough of a drop in the PSA level to declare "success".
She does not recommend AC, wanting to cure me at my "relatively young age" of 65.
Again, I had a 12 core biopsy with 1 cancerous tissue sample at 11% with a Gleeson score of 6.
She is recommending surgery and then follow-up radiation if a rising PSA score after surgery.
Has anybody heard of a similar situation?
