is taking prostate biospy necesssary
I am scheduled for a prostate biospy tomorrow. My Doctor a urologest said he will use nunbing jell and inject lidocane into prostate. I have an enlarged prostate causing me issues and I am 59. My psa is 4.3. When I take cipro it seems to help me, but the pain in groin snd urinaty issues come back after a few weeks stopping ciptr.
My psa 3 years ago was 3.8 and is now 4.3 taken 6 mths ago. Every 6 months is seems to go up about .1 or .2 Doctor said that he was being consevative for the last 2 yrs and now that it is over 4 and my prostate is big for my age he would like to rule out any cancer so I can ignore small fluctations, unless it shot up from a 4 to a 8 in one yr.
Is it a mistake too take biospy and can bph cause psa to gover 4.0. If a small mocrosopic cancer is found I plan a wait and see attitude for the next year. I will not rush into surgery, maybe in future use seed theaphry , but I plan not to do anything until after november
