Just curious what PSA level you were at when diagnosed. Mine was 85 with Gleason score of 7. Stage T3c. Doc said I had it for some time. I was 55 years old.
Had a few minor symptoms but I chose to ignore them for a while.
I am 71 years old. My PSA was 15.98 Gleason score 8. I have not been staged yet. Six years ago my PSA was 1.92.
I am 65 with a PSA of 4.9 and a Gleason score of 3+4. I am having it treated.
Five years later a rising PSA indicated the need for external beam Radiation (40 treatments + Lupron) My PSA in 2018 had reached 0.13. Today our MDs here are recommending radiation starting at 0.1 after surgery if PSA is rising vs the older guideline of 0.2.
So far all is good - fingers crossed and trying not to focus on an unknown future - just taking it a day at a time. Hope that information helps. PSA levels can be high due to things other than cancer - a larger prostate will generate a higher PSA . A PSA of 85 is getting up there - good you are addressing it . Dennis(ProstateCancer.net TEAM)
