Prostatectomy and salvage radiation--before the age of 45.
Congratulations for the results.Do you have the exact figures under 0.1?Regards
Thanks.My doctor is prescribing the standard PSA assay, which only goes down to 0.1. That's fine with me. I am definitely prone to PSA anxiety. Let's say my number, on the ultra-sensitive test, is 0.03 one time, then 0.04, then 0.05, then 0.02--I'd be going crazy for no reason.Patrick Walsh has written about this in his book--and there's another version of the same argument here (scroll down on the page: "PSA Anxiety--the Downside of Ultrasensitive Tests" http://tinyurl.com/28e67eThere are others who would strongly disagree, and say the more information, the better.To each his own--for me, I've got the right level of information.
