I had my annual checkup with my local urologist. He found no change in the DRE. My PSA result was 2.8, still slightly above where it was a year ago but not a very big change. My local urologist believes there is no need for another biopsy at this time but suggested blood tests for PSA in another 6 months to make sure there was not a large change. This is good news as far as I’m concerned. It’s actually a hair lower than my test 6 months ago, but that could easily be within day-to-day variations and because the two physicians use different labs, too.
As for PSA screening, there is this article that is of interest:
So, more evidence that just a moderately high PSA level alone may not be a good reason for a biopsy without other factors!
