PSA Oncology Check

After my PSA went to 0.14, the oncologist said that while he was disappointed that it had gone up, he wasn't going to do anything, except see me in 8 weeks, after another blood test, and an MRI scan. He does not want to say anything more until , or if, it went up to 0.2. So, back on the 13th! July. I will keep posting after that . Good luck to all.

  • Good Luck Mike. The PSA tests are like the sword of Damocles! You never know if the swords going to fall and or when it's going to fall. In the case of PSA, if it gets to 0.2, official recurrence. The worst thing is not knowing. I chose to have prostatectomy because after PSA is supposed to be zero, and stay there. I was really shaken when it reappeared. I can empathise with you.

  • Cheers Timz, just goes to prove you are never alone.
