PSA rise after 6 months on hormone treatment
My 84 year old father was diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer in January, which had spread to the pelvis and right femur. There was no biopsy so we have no Gleason score. His PSA was 31 and it dropped to 1.97 three months after his first hormone injection. But today he went for his second injection six months after starting treatment, and the PSA has risen to 4.9.
We now have to wait for an oncology appointment and scans etc. We're worried sick.
Has this happened to anyone else and what did that mean for you?
