The rate of rise of the PSA is important, it is normally termed PSA velocity.
may first decide to repeat the test to confirm the result.
In general the faster the rise in PSA the risk of cancer and the risk of an aggressive form of cancer increases. However, it is up to the urologist to determine whether this is even a possibility.
He or she will take a comprehensive history , followed by examination of the prostate
. Examination would look at the size and texture of the prostate which is also very important.
He/she may suggest further tests based on the findings. These may include biopsy
of the prostate and imaging of the back.
Hope this answers your questions
