Hello everyone. I am looking for some advice. I am 55. No history of prostate cancer in my family. My story began about 5 years ago when I had my PSA checked with my annual blood work. It was 4.2 so the doctor recommended to get it retested. I decided to wait until my next check up a year later. It went to 6.0. I was sent to urologist and was told I should have a biopsy. Had the biopsy done and all tests were negative for cancer. I was told the high PSA could be a infection in my prostate. Was treated with antibiotics for 6 weeks afterwards. Went for follow up PSA and it was up to 12. Doctor didn't seemed concerned being the biopsy was negative. A year later I had my PSA tested again with my gp and it was down to 8. Went to urologist again and was told I should get a 3T MRI. Got that done and it was negative. Just showed a larger than normal prostate. Jump ahead another year PSA up to 13.0
Went for another 3T MRI and again it was negative showing no tumors but larger than normal prostate. In the middle of all this they also did some genetic test and was told that was negative as well. So I am currently diagnosed with BPH. But my gp seems to think that I have something going on that they just have not found yet. Just wondering if anyone else has/ is going through this?
