My urologist is recommending I have a biopsy. I’m considering trans perineal biopsy.
My PSA results have fluctuated: 4.9 (3Mar18), 4.6 (20Mar18), 6.8 (8May18), 5.5 (6Jun18), 5.3 (2Aug16).
I had MRI on 29May18 which showed “tumor 0.33 cc stranded wedge shaped area of lower T2, moderate restriction, in right posterior peripheral zone. Looks moderately suspicious with overall score 4/5. No visible extra capsular tumor or bulge. Significant tumor >0.2cc or Gleeson 3+4 or higher.”
Am considering trans perineal biopsy end September 2018 (first I could get) by Professor Emberton of Princess Grace Hospital with view to High Frequency Ultrasound (HIFU) Treatment if required. I live outside UK so am not covered by NHS. Private treatment is extenely expensive but I fear my health and life is at stake. Any comments and thoughts most welcome.
