My husband had originally a PSA reading of 15.2 a glee son score of 4 + 3 ( 7 ) that was 6 years ago and with hormone treatment went down to 0.01.recently however it has started to rise and is now 5.9 .I realise this is not a high reading but it is rising. We spoke to our consultant ,who in turn spoke to his Oncology colleagues who advised that wouldn't,t see it as problem unless it doubled in 6 months ( his reading was 3.2 rising to 5.9 in 13 months ) so not what would be considered a problem,. However my husband was given an appointment for a bone scan, which he has had today, He has been in no pain and has lost no weight, but he is very concerned because the technician said at the end of the scan , "I need to do the hips again because the pictures look a bit complicated,"not a very sensible thing to say under the circumstances ,so of course now he is extremely stressed,and I am at a loss as to what to say to my husband to hopefully reassure him ,at least until we get the results, and of course we don,t when that will be.Has anyone in the community had this happen to them ,and have any advise as to how to deal with it. I know we will have to wait for the results but we feel in some ways it would have been better if no comment had been made at all .Sorry to be making a big thing of it , especially as the PSA reading is so low in comparison to so many others,however it is still a concern.
