Hi, I am a newbie on this board. I'm 68 and have been on PSA watch for about 4 years with 6 monthly blood PSA tests. My PSA levels tend to bounce around at bit with highest about 12 and lowest 6. My consultant urologist has told me I have an enlarged prostate (golf ball size vs walnut size) but the biopsy was clear. That was 3 years ago and my GP has been asked to refer me back if PSA >8.
I also have a rare blood cancer (essential thrombocythemia) and on a recent blood test for that it showed PSA of 8.2 - so probably borderline. I need to drink 2-3 litres of water a day for the ET, but I find I am always needing to pee - probably 12-15 times per day and increasing. My bladder area also feels quite tender.
I am generally in good health, but getting a bit concerned about the bladder problem. I would appreciate any advice or your experiences if you have been there too.
