Bad Omen

Not the first time I've seen this, but it's disturbing. A new report shows that a PSA that rises more than 2.0 in the year before treatment is the single most important indicator that a man has a very aggressive cancer. Mine was rising faster than that--it went up 2 points in only SIX MONTHS. That, according to the study, puts me at high risk of dying from prostate cancer.
I'm going to get a full-text copy of the report, because I have a lot of questions--such as, did any of the men have salvage radiation and how did that affect their odds of dying?
