Re: How fast does prostrate cancer spread?

You are being rushed and this will not result in the most favorable outcome. Bone and CT scans are a 50% proposition except in very high risk cases with high psa. If you wish to gain more information...

Re: PSA increases

Mr. Splash,

I would first ask your doctor for a free psa test and a urine PCA3 test. If these are abnormal then by all means get a biopsy.
Taking a valium and a viocodine before a biopsy makes...

Re: PC at 51

You can do AS if it is monitored by a doctor that is familiar with AS, As you said at 70 it would be a no brainer, but at 50 it gets a little trickier. If I were embarking on an AS program I...

Re: Need more advice please

Your husband should have been given Casodex two weeks prior to Lupron to prevent flair. You should be seeing a prostate oncologist at this time and not a urologist. Your doctor was very...

Re: Husband just diagnosed with prostate cancer

Don't be too hard on your doctor as there are probably only a handful of doctors that could have recognized this. I spent 10 years with a rising psa that finally got to 40. I went to major...

Re: What am I in for?

Your psa is normal for a 54cc prostate, but the DRE and MRIS are suspicious so a biopsy is warrented. To insure the biopsy hits the suspected area you may want to consider a color doppler guided...

Re: PSA: Active Surveillance - or 2nd Opinion?

I don't think you can go wrong with Scholz/Bahn. They were the ones that discovered my PC after 10 years of going to urologists and having 13 negative biopsies. If you are against invasive...

Re: PSA: Active Surveillance - or 2nd Opinion?

The best color doppler radiologists are Dr Duke Bahn in Ventura Ca, Dr Fred Lee in Rochester MI and Dr Michael Dattoli in Sarasota Fla. With the CDU it's the Indian and not the arrow, meaning that...

Re: High PSA Biopsy Negative

Bph does not usually cause a psa of 24 and a high psa is abnormal and must be investigated and all causes eliminated. Unfortunately the vast majority of doctors just don't know how to do this....

Re: Psa 24

A psa of 24 is worrisome. The fast rise to 24 does indicate some type of infection as prostate cancer usually does not rise that fast. A course of antibiotics like Cipro or Bactrum should reduce the...

Re: Proton therapy and brachy info needed

To add to Jim's excellent comments it may be helpful to understand why surgeries fail.
1. The cancer has escaped beyond the capsul and is systemic.
2. The cancer is still localized but has extended...

Re: Husband just diagnosed, won't talk about it, any advice?

You have been given some great advice. Don't let the doctor rush you into a treatment before you get 2nd opinions from a radiologist and medical oncologist specializing in PC. "Invasions of the...

Re: Pomegranate confirmation!!!!!

You don't have to use POMX. Life Extensions has a pomegranite extract that I have been taking for 2 years and I'm sure they will ship to Canada.

Re: Fluctuating PSA Readings - Long Story

If you don't want to get a 24 core biopsy then I would suggest a color doppler ultrasound and a biopsy can be done on only the areas that are suspicious, between 3 and 6 samples. The CDU should be...

Re: Recently diagnosed, thoroughly perplexed about options

I've had a total of probably over 150 sample biopsy cores, many in the same area and never had a problem. I don't think there is an issue with smples being close to one another.
