PSA of 0.07 after brachytherapy and external radiation and hormone therapy ?
Is this rare to have this after a gleason score of 9 ?

Hi . A lot of factors can go into the PSA level after radiation and hormone therapy, such as how long it has been since treatment. This article from the American Cancer Society discusses what to expect from PSA after various treatments: https://www.cancer.org/cancer/prostate-cancer/treating/psa-levels-after-treatment.html#:~:text=There%20is%20also%20a%20phenomenon,to%20affect%20a%20man's%20prognosis. Has your doctor had anything specific to say about the PSA level? Best, Richard (ProstateCancer.net Team)
