Hi, I'm a 42 y/o male being investigated for AS and am HLA-B27 negative. Pain in lower back and ribs for six months. At my first physio appt yesterday (I'm still waiting for my rheumy appt) it was suggested I have PSA test, to which I agreed.
Obviously this caused me a little alarm and sent me scurrying to the internet where I find that referred back pain can be a symptom of prostate cancer. Has anyone else been referred for this test? The physio did not do the BASMI tests at this stage but did do basic assessments and press on my sacroiliac joint however I don't feel pain instantly on contact, so she and the specialist are probably fairly flummoxed!
