Re: Rising PSA, need guidance on next move

Biopsy done. Wasn't so bad. Of course i dropped 2 xanax about an hour before, so i was looped.
Got result from nurse via email that result was negative, no cancer. Then a week and a half later, i spoke with the Uro who told me 14 cores taken, 13 negative, 1 showed High Grade Pin. Told me to retake PSA in 6 months. I might take it in 3.
Doc said, that right now the HGPIN is not significant, but i need to be vigilant. So i did some reading, which is a mistake, and i realize that i have a high probability of being diagnosed, just a question of how long i have before it happens. Not thrilling.
