I am new to this site, live in the UK. I recently had a PSA test at 7.5 and, because for other reasons I can't have an MRI, consultant asked for a biopsy. I had a transrectal ultrasound and it has come back at a Gleason score of 4+3.. The consultant is suggesting surgery, but we will discuss after the Christmas break and a bone scan.
It has been suggested that a better diagnostic biopsy is a Transperineal biopsy? Does anyone have an opinion on this?
Also has anyone had a PSMA PET scan to back up the diagnosis?
Any help and ideas welcomed.
