I live overseas and have somewhat limited choices as to tests and the ability to make a complete diagnosis.
In the past, I have had a prostate infection, hematospermia, a slightly varying and high PSA (5+)and I have generally been diagnosed with an enlarged prostate and BPH.
I have had two TRUS exams. There didn't seem to be much change in the results; 3 years apart. An enlarged prostate and one noticeable node.
I am currently taking Cardura, but still having a somewhat difficult time with urine flow and strength.
My doctor, given the testing choices available here, has recommended an MRI.
However, they do not have the ability to do an Endorectal MRI - only the regular-type body MRI exam.
I am wondering if this type of MRI will provide any practical results.
I am assuming the Endorectal MRI would be more useful.
The regular MRI is not cost-prohibitive, but I am wondering if it will yield anything useful.
