An abnormal gall bladder does show up in the blood, an abnormal physical exam, and many times requires additional x-rays or other imaging tests. ...Read more

Diagnosed with prostate cancer, resulting in surgical removal 4 months ago. Since, I have night sweats and subst. Amount of urine flow every night.

Prostate cancer: Sorry to hear about your prostate cancer. Fortunately, if diagnosed early recovery is very likely. Surgical treatment tends to be more prone to longer recoveries and problems such as uroinary incontinence. Most of the time, with time, this will improve significantly. The concern here is the night sweat issue. I presume your doctor has check for chronic post-op infections? ...Read more

Do I have prostate cancer? I have zero symptoms and urine tests are fine but I do have a tiny sensation in the tip of my penis? Started after Lexapro (escitalopram)

Do I have prostate cancer? I have zero symptoms and urine tests are fine but I do have a tiny sensation in the tip of my penis?  Started after Lexapro (escitalopram)

No.: The sensation you describe does not raise any suspicion for prostate cancer. Given your age (25), there is no advantage for prostate cancer screening at this time. If you continue to feel this sensation and it is bothersome, work with your physician and see if it may be related to your Lexapro (escitalopram) prescription. ...Read more

Urine tested positive for blood said its normal for patients that had radiation therapy for prostate cancer also are ther any cancer cells in urine bl?

Urine tested positive for blood said its normal for patients that had radiation therapy for prostate cancer also are ther any cancer cells in urine bl?

Possibly: Radiation therapy can cause inflammatory changes in the bladder which can result in microscopic blood in the urine. However a urine cytology should be performed to rule out possibly bladder abnormalities. Additionally, if the history of radiation therapy is in the past, then a cystoscopy (camera to look in your urethra and bladder) may be warranted. Please discuss further with your doctors. ...Read more

Can a 24 yrs old male get prostate cancer? Was on cipro (ciprofloxacin) for 1 month for prostatitis, now stopped. Burning in urine and ejaculating on perineum area.

24 yo men: Do not get prostate cancer. You could have persistent prostatitis. I'm confused about perineal ejacaulate if you do not have perineal urination as well. You need to see a urologist that can examine external genitalia, perineum, rectum and cystourethroscopy. ...Read more

My man has stage 3 prostate cancer even though the blood test was negative. How could the test have been wrong?

PSA is not perfect: Blood tests are molecules shed from the surface of a tumor into the blood. The ones available for most tumors are carbohydrate markers that are only of value for tumor response and not diagnosis. The prefix to these markers are CA 125 for ovary and CA 19.9 for pancreatic Ca. The CA refers to carbohydrate antigen. PSA is such an antigen and unreliable in about 40% of patients. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my man has stage 3 prostate cancer even though the blood test was negative. how can that be?

Psa normal: Not all prostate cancers express PSA. Therefore, someone can have a prostate cancer but still have a normal PSA. I have heard estimates as high as 5-10% of prostate cancers do not express PSA. This is one of the reasons why a prostate exam should be done in addition to a PSA test for screening. At stage 3, he should proceed for further evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
