My partner is scheduled for prostate biopsy inapproximately6 weeks time to find out what is causing his high PSA level, 7.6 down from 9.5. From the information on these forums we decided to have a 3T scan done first to provide more detail and act as a map so to speak. The consultant is reluctant about this and does not seem to think it necessary. In his words if it is a high grade cancer it would be missed! We get the impression that he thinks it was being chosen instead of biopsy which it isn't. Surely it's best to have all the images etc possible before going in to take samples? We don't like his choice of words either. This could be BPH or prostatitis. He has burning in the middle section of urethra when urinating but apart from that no symptoms. He isn't even going to loo frequently any more. Confused and worried.
