High PSA and prostate cancer decision
Al here-age 76-fairly good health except for the prostate-weigh in at 163 lbs & am 5 ft 11 inches-excersize daily & eat the so called right stuff-on 6/14 the primary doc sent me to the UR doc-had an enlarged prostate so i thought-ur doc said i was retaining urine & was not eliminating correctly-had a cystoscopy done in 8/14,only to find out that the uretha was pressing up against the prostate & was having difficulty on passing correctly-BPH was the original thought-the first PSA was 13.3-after i agreed to have a procedure done called the button plasma vaporization done on 9/14-this helped out quite well as i was able to urinate fairly well & did not leak no more like prior at bedtime-1/15-PSA was 10.3-that was encouraging-on 4/15 the PSA was 12.9 which the UR doc wanted to do a biopsy & i said,no-
on 9/18/15 the PSA WAS 15.8-Had a MRI done on 6/15 which showed a speck of cancer
Am concerned,but will go to the primary tomorrow on the 22nd of Sept to hear his thoughts-once again at my age with all the invasive procedures out there, one must be somewhat concerned on whether it is all worth the fret & anxious moments plus the anxiety that it can create-any thoughts out there-thanks.
Most men who have prostate cancer will die from something else. In fact 90%.
So assume you have prostate cancer. Is it worth the suffering from invasive procedures?

I would recommend reading my diet book as well so you can refine your diet even more.
Bottom line: I am not a doctor and you will need to make your own decision about what to do.
