What do these PSA levels indicate?
While many tests can be done, Repeating the PSA in several months to a year is the generally recommended one. Seems to be what the paper itself is recommending. A more sensitive measure of prostate cancer is seeing the rate of change of prostate protein (PSA). If it doubles, but stayed in the normal range in a year, that would be quite a cause for concern. If it stayed the same or dropped, that would not be a cause of concern.
I do not see any abnormal values on any of the tests but the particular lab doesn't seem to mark abnormals nor give lab normal values in a manner that is easy to read, so I might have missed something.
Our worry is around the enlarged prostate. The MRI, Blood Test, Uroflow and PSA reports are all attached to the thread.Is there an immediate need for surgery?
If not, as recommended by you the PSA test should be taken every year to study the increase/decrease in the protein? Please let me know.
Also I would like to hear from Dr. Baranidharan Kuselan since he was studying my father's condition.
Sorry, I've no idea how to contact anyone on this site.
And... surgery ? what surgery ?
for ulcer, you'd first try a proton pump inhibitor twice a day... that nearly always works. You'd also consider testing for a stomach infection with H PYLORI which can be treated with the cheapest antibiotics with bisthmuth (fast, easy, safe).
The BPH is a reason for surgery ONLY on the basis of comfort. otherwise testing as mentioned.
