PSA Reading 18.2

Last reply: 2 months ago

Got the shock of my life last week when getting the results of a blood test to find I had a reading of 18.2
my doctor immediately booked me in at Beaumont (still awaiting the appointment) although should be soon

only symptoms i have are erectile dysfunction which i have had for 10+years so don't think that is the issue but I am peeing slowly yet from memory even just a couple of months ago it was a mixture some slow and some like a fireman's hose.

Mind is all up in the air at the moment and that waiting is a killer

anyone else with similar symptoms?
