Symptoms would rule an intervention which could occur after many years of quality living (avoiding the risks from treatments). In the process of all this they found that my PSA was now at 69. Only the biopsy will do that. That was mentioned earlier in this section by Hopeful & Optomistic. However he wasn't in practice at that time. Hi Max, What you say is true, but I have had this OCD thing since I was about 8 years old.....Can't unlearn 50 years of bad habits in 10 minutes, especially at times of stress....Plus I have an intensely curious nature......Most OCD types do, we need to "know" answers to questions....We don't let things lie. This lasted for several months. We see in this forum many reporting the same dilemma over and over again. Then, 1 year into this PCA situation, My Chemo Oncologist, suggested I change Dermatologists. In 2010 I read a Chinese clinical study done by researchers in China that managed some evidence comparing image studies with post biopsy findings. But yes, It does give a person hope. The guy who followed me every day, was having treatment for a very serious reoccuring cancer (head and neck) and that would set the tone for him as the days went by, and we got to be pretty good "buds". Do things coordinately and timely. At my last check up, my PSA still remains at <0.010, where it has been since two months post surgery. But either way it remains a subordinate bit of data, to assist after a biopsy is in hand. For detecting cancer that has come back throughout the body, a CT scan is preferable to an MRI. All manner of rambling is welcome... OCD can really jerk a guy around. You don't mention if you are married, but if you are I wonder if your relationship "changed" at all? It is almost routine to do a standard mpMRI scan for early PCa diagnosis. Here are some links that may be interest to you; http://www.cancernetwork.com/articles/percent-free-psa-test-may-prevent-unnecessary-biopsies, https://www.webmedcentral.com/article_view/3463, Hi VGama, Thanks for replying.....I was under the impression that although not brilliant, a free PSA of 23% wasn't a terrible figure....In fact the British association of Urological surgeons use a figure of >22% as most likely benign....My lab test stated > 23% (so guess I'm on the cusp)....that and the fact that my first test of 7.5 dropped to 4.3 within 2 weeks ....(does this sound like a man clutching at straws? Here in Central PA, they usually had Country Music going. Perhaps I should change my moniker here to hopeless and pessimistic, I don't know if I could do the active surveillance thing....I don't think I have that kind of personality glad it's working for you, Good luck with the biopsy, hope it all works out for you. The MRI, on the other hand, gives doctors the chance to zero in on a particular lesion in the prostate and gather tissue from that location. Tony, you do not know if or if not you have any cancer at this time, but if you are diagnosed with a low aggressive, low volume disease this can be a consideration. So make sure and get yourself in the best condition you can and then get right back at it as soon as you feel up to it. I don't have the personality to be told there's "something" there and not have to know what it is......That' s the trouble with PCa there are no hard and fast rules, even the best doctors can't predict outcomes it would seem. Briefly: 58 Years old, Live in UK so under NHS, been referred by GP and having tests at hospital for a sudden rise in PSA from regular 3.1 to 7.5 after a 14 month gap between tests.....Whilst waiting for hospital to get in touch went to a private clinic for a new PSA test with "Free PSA".....This test came back at 4.3 PSA and a free PSA of 23%. June 12 (UPI) -- Doctors have traditionally relied on ultrasounds to examine men for prostate cancer, but the method can't pinpoint specific tumors, a new study says. Ultimately all the research I have done in the last 7 weeks has amounted to a row of beans..But if nothing else I have "met" some very supportive people (yourself included) on this forum and other forums who have been happy to educate me and give me reassurance.....So for that I am truly appreciative...... A mpMRI can highlight areas where a cancer mass "may" be present in the prostate and is a good diagnostic tool for determining what areas of the prostate should be biopsied but it cannot detect smaller, less obvious cancer sites. So, Please be aware that this problem could come about. My Hernias popped out while I was carrying a ladder down a flight of steps from the back sun deck on the house. I have the surround sound fired up right now on Blues Station right now. My surgery took 5 1/2 hours to complete. I was out on the road up to three hours per day. These can predict the clinical stage (advancement) of a positive case. Copyright © 2021 United Press International, Inc. All Rights Reserved. "......Unfortunately the more I learn the more I fear that this "something" might be what I'm dreading.....This after putting my details into the UT Health and Science centre of San Antonio's nomogram and getting 83 smiley faces out of 100 (meaning I had only a 17% chance of something sinister.....)....To quote a line from my favourite movie Some like it hot "Nobody's Perfect", I remember saying to my wife just before we walked into the hospital urologists office...."If there are scans clipped onto light boxes I'm screwed".....I even jokingly  said to try to peek a look at my notes to see if there's a skull and crossbones drawn on them.....Black humour is the only form of protection when facing something like "hospital tests", As for Optimistic and hopefuls helpful posts.....I guess that anything is possible, like I mentioned earlier I am not a good patient and hate taking pills and potions of any kind....the thought of the various treatments for PC just leave me very trepidatious....Could I sleep with the enemy? At the same annual conference of 2015, Dr. Dan Margolis (a radiologist at UC Los Angeles) introduced the PI-RADS score which ranged from 1 to 5 namely highly unlikely to highly likely. "If we can identify the location of tumors and put biopsy needles directly into them, why not find a way to destroy the tumor on the spot? DRE is a crude tool with low positive predictive value and high inter-observer variability.2 Although PSA levels correlate with … I love the UK, and as a US submariner visited Portsmouth, England once, Dunoon, Scotland many times, and Faslane (Her Majestie's Naval Base and lead submarine facility)  once or twice. The Doc at the hospital said that if I "wasn't bothered" I could wait for my next PSA check and see what was going on. It works on the principle of detecting the change in the direction of rotational axes of protons in body fluids with the help of magnetic and radiation stimuli. Your physical condition is very important in the results from you treatments. Lesions on MRI were assigned a PIRADS score and comparison made with histopathology results. Hi Will, Glad you liked Dr Feelgood.....They're not to everybodys taste......They were a typical Pub Rock band who made good and then fell apart within a few years.....A bunch of working class (you'd say blue collar) boys from a very poor part of industrial Essex, called Canvey Island (about 30miles from London). Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. There are other cyclists and runners, One of us is even a body builder and is doing competitions. I didn't realize it, because I didnt' know her married name. In fact for low level cancers the long time prgression of disease  are similar between those who have had surgery and those in an Active Sureillence program. The side effects for the Prolia are as bad or even worse than the Lupron. The MRSI scan is the only one that I know of (other than the similiar but yet different PET-Choline scan) which can actually detect for the existence and location of a cancer. But MRI uses strong magnets to make the images – not radiation. At any rate you received good answers from the other posters. The biopsy followed and it was positive in all needles. This thread has become unexpectedly interesting for music people; I am one of  them, but don't play anything (except CDs). I should also mention to you, that as you move along in you treatments and fight, be aware, than if you have had or are prone to Melanoma Skin Cancer, make sure you go often for check ups. I was into cycling pretty heavy. I had been in for surgery for a Melanoma and in the blood work it showed a PSA of 4.3 as with you. "Our research suggests that the different biopsy methods identify different tumors," study author Leonard Marks, a researcher of urology at UCLA, said in a news release. I started building up time on the spinner bike to 100 - 120 minutes per day. The doctor I see in Hershey, PA, USA is into heavy research into the relationship between Melanoma and other cancers. I'm 6ft 2in tall, 200 lbs. It was a hit and run. The seven studies represented a total of 526 patients, which is a sizable population for assessing how accurate the imaging was compared to the tissue sample analysis (called histopathology). ).....I have had so many aches and pains since this all began (all attributable to PC of course.....in no way related to my age ).....The one thing that is freaking me out at the moment is a grumbling hip pain....I have now convinced myself that this "Means" something....I'm now kicking my butt that I never went to the hospital 2 and a half years ago when my GP wanted to send me with my 3.1 PSA (I knew better...thought 3.1 being only .1 above the cutoff for my age was "SAFE"....Ignorance and denial will get you every time), In life it pays to be born lucky.....You certainly have to be lucky overall with doctors....As you say things could have worked out so much differently for you had you got the right doctor first time round....The only thing I could really say is maybe my GP could have twisted my arm and "made" me go to the hospital back then, but overall it's not her responsibility....I'm an adult....she did agree to check my PSA every 6 months instead of annually, so I can't complain.....I'm in the UK so under the NHS and despite the fact that they get a "bad press" sometimes they have been excellent to me (so far)....The hospital urologist just surprised me really with his attitude.....Not unpleasant, just very businesslike.....never even introduced himself, I had to ask his name....Its always possible of course that some Doctors are not very good when faced with patients who they have to give bad news to......Maybe it's a kind of defensive mechanism....don't get too friendly in case the patient asks too many questions, and you have to give him some dodgy answers....Maybe I'm reading too much itno it...Maybe he's just generally an A**hole. It would probably not be approved by an insurance carrier for preliminary diagnostic  purposes. This holds true even when the breast lesion is not detectable using other imaging methods such as mammogram, X-ray or physical examination. Please be aware of all the side effects from these drugs and treatments. (bit like cholesterol).....Not realising as I do now that people under 2 can have PCa.....Maybe the Doc should have been firmer, but I can't blame her.....I took the decision to pass....Just asked if I could be checked every 6 months....She agreed and that's how it was for a few readings (always 3.1) so got complacent and left it for 14 months and then got my unpleasant surprise....I went mainly because my hip started aching, plus a bit of back ache that comes and goes.....and that is now what is freaking me out.....I may be noticing them more than I would usually.....Hell I may even be exaggerating them, but I'm not imagining them....I wasn't avoiding the biopsy because of the needles.....needles don't bother me, although I'm not looking forward to the procedure...I really thought that after what my private guy said (and he was unequivocal here) he looked at my new lowered test results done at his clinic's lab, he asked me some basic questions, gave me a DRE and said "No Cancer"....I hasten to add that this is not some back street butcher.....This guy specialises in the Prostate, he's a professor of Urology, has done some 950 Robotic surgeries, has written many books and scientific papers on the subject, collaborating with American doctors and professors at Sloan Kettering, John Hopkins etc. The PI-RADS (Prostate imaging reporting and data system) comes from these tentative efforts. He wanted to have it standardized or teach the many on a principle in a reading process. There was a brilliant documentary movie made about the band called "Oil City Confidential" by the Director Julian Temple.....If you love rock and roll you'll love this film....All human life is there, Also if you get the series Game of thrones then Wilko Johnson appears as Ser LLyn the kings executioner....Here he is in one of the bands early hits "Roxette"....He's the guy in black with the chicken neck moves......sure knows how to play the guitar though....even though he's an odd looking guy, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaybV46MA6E, Got to admit to being impressed with your training regime.....Never mind the PCa .....You've kicked its ***....You'll live forever. I guess she saw something she was worried about. Especially when the Therapists (three or four women and one guy) would come dancing in the door when the treatment for the day was over. I imagine everyone reacts differently, but I'm not proud of myself for acting so bitterly....I'm sure that everybody here has found that the waiting for results is the hardest part.....I only have myself to blame for that part of course "mea culpa". I loved the English group Led Zeppelin's early hit Ramble On. So,  Sara ( Dr. Ferguson) has removed 11 Melanomas in 1 1/2 years, all have had to have follow ups surgery done.

He'd sit with my wife during my treatment and then we'd pass each day in the hall and give each other a "High Five", as we passed by each other. The following is a study of the use of the MRSI scan in prostate cancer dectection conducted at UCSF Medical Center where I was treated:  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1578527/. Like I say over and over It's one hell of a fight. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may not be the best diagnostic choice universally for all men suspected of having prostate cancer, according to researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian. He continues in this program. So, the radioactive treatments woudln't have worked. Hang in there and fight like hell. While the remaining 52 men had no visible lesions, the researchers still found cancer in 15 percent of them using the traditional ultrasound test. The thing to do now is get a biopsy. Accuracy of MRI in the Detection of Residual Breast Cancer After Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy November 2003, VOLUME 181 NUMBER 5 ... suggesting that MRI becomes more accurate as residual tumor size increases. I was a serious Road Cyclist, and it was thought that the cycling was causing a slight rise in the PSA. My doctor gave me the option of surgery or radiation treatments. It Seems to me that what this board needs is more symposia.....All this talk of Prostate Cancer is getting a bit morbid, Jeff Lynne of ELO is an amazingly interesting guy......and Sooooooo Talented.....try and find a documentary that was made for the BBC called "Mr Blue Sky" which is Jeff's life from his working class childhood in Birmingham right up to the Travellin Wilburys and the resurgence of ELO.....At 19 I once "totalled" a sports car that I was immensely proud of whilst changing sides on an ELO tape cassette (New world record) that was on constant "hard rotation", More Symposia.....And more wine is the order of the day. The cancer detection rate among women who actually underwent MRI screening was 16.5 per 1,000 … Other places on the site, you will see others who talk about physical condition. Finally They got the robot moved to the lymph nodes. These were called Symposia, from which they current English word symposium is derived. MRI Detects Breast Cancer with High Accuracy. I now feel like I have shot myself in the foot as I have now booked a biopsy for 2 weeks time and the results 2 weeks after that, so instead of finding out yesterday I now have another 4 weeks to sweat before I get a (maybe) definitive answer.......Basically my question is this: Has anybody had the experience where an MRI scan has shown up something which turned out to be nothing to worry about....or is the doc just not being 100% straight with me? They talk of remission. Normal is between 250 and 1,100. A biopsy is still the way to go when in doubt. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that can be used to find a tumor in the body and to help find out whether a tumor is cancerous. Dr Miller had to rebuild all that mesh after he was done doing the surgery. Doctor called me in, never introduced himself, was a bit stand offish, not unpleasant but very business like, asks why I did not have the biopsy? I was wrong. Additionally I listed information that you may find useful, Here is a quote from my page, that is  based on research for the logic that supports Active Surveilance, "Active Surveilance for delayed treatment, is a very viable treatment decision for low risk prostate cancer, since 97 percent of men with LRPC are likely to die of something other than prostate cancer. My dad had red hair. I can't get it out of my head ! whether you now take them in your stride, or is there always a sense of trepidation while awaiting for the results?.......Although I realise that with surgery, radiotherapy and all the other treatments there are follow up tests that I guess cause a few sleepless nights for everybody.....Unless you're made of stone....(I realise that I am not....My family crest is two white feathers  ). They may be used to locate large solid masses and distinguish benign from frankly malignant ovarian tumors, with overall accuracy of 88% to 93%. That was the area where the radiation had hit.

I did all sorts of tests all negative with the exception of the PSA. But it turned out I had to have The Chemo (Lupron) to weaken any remaining cancer cells that might have been left behind and then I had the 8 weeks of Radiation, after being on the Lupron for two months prior. For instance, one should secure an insurance that would cover treatments before been diagnosed positively (NHS is free but conditional to certain exams and therapies). Several live performances in the set. This continued for several months. Ever since asking this question on several forums a few days back I have now been educated a bit more, and directed to various web sites and I am now under the impression that the mpMRI with a good radiologist has a pretty good sensitivity in detecting tumors...using the PI-RADS score they could even have a pretty good guess at staging said growths.....My doc says that the "something" on my scan needs investigating and only a biopsy will tell....I was wondering if he was just being "Coy" and maybe not trying to worry me unduly at this stage....I'm of course hoping that they genuinely don't know and that this is going to turn out to be something less nasty....Any further info you have from your experience would be greatly appreciated. the fact that I immediately thought Lymph nodes just means all this PC stuff is messing with  my mind.....I'm now down to speak to the hernia people in a few weeks time.....getting old isn't all it's cracked up to be, Thanks for your good wishes.....Hope your condition just keeps getting better and better and in the meantime find Dr Feelgood's "Milk and Alcohol" and crank it up to 11.....even better for you than Da Vinci Surgery.

PET scan cancer detection accuracy - PET Scan, short for positron emission tomography, can detect cancer areas by photographing body cells while working. I'm still exercising daily with Physical Therapy , free weights and resistance bands and at least 80 minutes and up to 100 minutes per day on a Spinner Stationary Bike. Never say never. When my PSA rose 3x's in a row about 1 1/2  years after treatment and a recurrence was considered possible, I was given an MRI/MRSI (magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging) scan that detects for the presence of choline which is a marker for cancer. A breast MRI scan might also be used to assess the … I was diagnosed in March 09, I am enrolled in an Active Surveillance protocol....still have not had any Active treatment.......by the way, like you, I have just had another 3 T MRI and am awaiting a biopsy......(always apprehensive before any of these tests, but does not interfer with living and enjoying life), Hi Hopeful and optimistic, Too late for lunch here in the UK, it's dinner time....But know what you mean......I have now realised that when the going gets tough, I'm not only a glass half empty kind of guy, I'm the glass is half empty and there's a dog poop in the bottom of it kind of guy....On the emotional roller coaster at the moment and they wont let me get off. With the help of powerful magnetic field and radio waves, MRI creates detailed images of tissues as well as internal organs. I had one very small spot in one lymph node. I'm a blue eyed, blond of German descent. Those dark spots in image could be cysts or calculi non cancerous. they were big in the UK in the 70's....as I'm writing this I'm listening to the radio and there is currently an interview with their guitarist Wilko Johnson who was diagnosed with late stage pancreatic cancer 3 years ago,  he chose not to receive chemo.....He is now "cured" and has resumed his music career, played last year at Glastonbury, made an album with Roger Daltrey from "The Who" and so on.....Gives everyone a bit of hope I guess. Your conventional PSA rise, or 'vector' (also called 'Doubling Rate') was significant, but it also does not 'prove' anything. However my doctors are very careful to never use the word cure. Many times I'd let it there, but sometimes change to Jazz or Blues, depending on my state of mind that day. The team then performed statistical calculations on the assembled data. Dr. Miller (my urologist / surgeon) had told me that because of my physical condition and my "Youth" (at which I laughed until I cried) I was a good candidate for the Robotic Assisted Surgery. To emphasize in the usa, and  the regulations for administering PSA have changed a couple of years ago, so there are less diagnostic psa's for many, thus resulting in less men being diagnosed and less radical treatments (these guideline were most likely changed because of the overtreatment among those with low level disease.....by the way many do not believe that a gleason 6 is a cancer, and the term cancer should not be used to describe a gleason 6.

E ven though the vast majority of cancer mortality is due to metastatic disease, clinical practice indicates that current imaging tools are capable of detecting large metastases (about 0.5-1 cm in size), but rarely detect the early spread of metastatic tumor cells. It helped, I think. Turned out, I was very glad I did the surgery. Hi VG, Thanks for replying with a very informative post....Of course when I asked the original question, I really wanted the repy....."NO! Regarding the MRI tesla 3 (3T), we know that it provides better image (higher resolution) clear to identify disturbances, but as your doctor commented it does not distinguish cancerous cells from benign. MRI creates cross-section pictures of your insides. It was to take 2 1/2 hours. After cancer treatment, an MRI is unable to determine whether remaining masses are cancerous: The MRI might show signs of cancer, but that cancer might not be active.
