I have Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy ( enlarged prostate ) and have been on Tamulosin for many years. On my annual PSA check I had a reading of 6.5. On re check back down to 4 but my consultant says if my recent test is back up again I will need to have biopsy. Problem is that with my BPH and prostatitis raised PSA can be normal. So you go for the uncomfortable biopsy to check for cancer and highly likely no problem. Maybe better to be safe than sorry but I have been trying to avoid surgical intervention for a long time. Any advice or past experiences shared would be greatly appreciated.
