I am a 42 yr. old who was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer back on April of 2012 my PSA level had jumped from 1.90 in 3/2011 to 2.68 on 4/2012.My Gleason score showed 3+3 in one of two cores and a 3+4 in two of two coreswith 5% of tissue on both. I decided to have Radioactive Seed Therapy because taking out my Prostate was too risky due to me having a kidney transplant. I had my PSA level checked 3 times since the implant and the first one was on 10/2012 1.98 and 3/2013 1.24 and my last one I just did it was 9/2013 1.40 so it went up just a little. Should my levels be lower like under 1.00 and should I be worried that it jumped up a little? If you have any info that can help let me know. ThanksView Thread
Thanks for sharing your experience with me, I am hopeful from all the info you gave me and from what the doctors have said before I had the seed implant. I am looking forward to the day my PSA will drop below 1.0 and into single digit numbers.View Thread
