Because of negative publicity over the PSA test and the fact that my doctor never mentioned it, I did not get a PSA test until, at 66, I had urinary symptoms. That PSA was 25.6 and DRE showed “hard and nodular,” and the subsequent biopsy showed 11/12 cores positive with an overall GS 5+3=8 and an enlarged prostate (58cc) — a high-risk cancer. I may have had more treatment options is I had caught it earlier, before symptoms appeared. Luckily, my cancer had apparently not spread and my treatment protocol (12 months of ADT with an HDRBT “boost” followed by 5 weeks of IMRT) resulted in an undetectable PSA since Nov 2014. I try to educate the men I know and urge them to consider early screening, despite the shortsighted recommendations of the USPSTF. I believe this Give 1 for Dad copper-transport study is important and could lead to a new, improved treatment option.
