After a prostate biopsy that showes no cancer. Can I recieve testosterone injections. That my psa is 300?
Hold off. Psas can be elevated for many reasons, including uti, prostatitis, and prostate cancer. A psa of 300 is very high and very unusual. It would be wise to have a repeat psa and if it is still elevated consider a repeat 12 - 16 core biopsy. If prostate cancer is present, testosterone therapy will worsen it.
In april 03, 2013 I had a prostate biopsy because of a high psa 9.0. The biopsy result was negative for cancer but the prostate is 2 times larger than?
PSA density. Can describe whether the size of your gland explains the psa. The negative biopsy says they did not find the cancer, but it can also mean they missed it. I would repeat the psa and establish a pattern. You should refrain from sex a week or 2 before repeating the psa. If the psa continues to rise, repeat the biopsies. Read more...
