Re: Rising PSA, need guidance on next move

First have a biopsy to determine the presence of cancer. A lump sounds like either infection or tumor. A good idea to know the difference. Secondly, PSA readings increase with prostate size (increase tissue = increase psa). Next have biopsies examined by a "specialized" laboratory such as Bostwick Laboratories. Need to determine Gleason Score, 3/3 best and if so, many options including doing little but future PSA's and Dopplars to observe. If higher, a need to "research" and get in touch with Yana and other sights with 100's of PCA people with allot of experience from genesis to treatments and afterwards. Keep in touch and I wil try to offer more.
