A few months ago, I visited my uroligist again. My DRE was unchanged from previous visits. I did report some minor symptoms for the first time. An extra overnight trip to urinate now and then, for example. Every once in a while, the flow just aint what it used to be. He said there’s probably no need for treatment at this point, but if things worsen, I would consider something like Avodart, Proscar or Flomax. He also said that since my PSA has risen slightly, I should continue monitoring it every 6 months.
On the plus side, I had another PSA test this week, as I was due for a cholesterol lipid panel blood test. The level was 2.79, well within my range over the last few years.
