[display_name id=”0″]Here’s a short section from my reference, which I suggest you read:

>>The prostate (from Greek προστάτης – prostates, literally “one who stands before”, “protector”, “guardian”[1]) is a compound tubuloalveolar exocrine gland of the male mammalian reproductive system. Women do not have a prostate gland, although women do have microscopic paraurethral Skene’s glands connected to the distal third of the urethra in the prevaginal space that are homologous to the prostate<<

It is very near the ducts leading to the penis, and can cause urinary problems if it becomes enlarged, and prevents normal secretion of fluids from the kidneys.

There is a picture of it on my reference below.

[display_name id=”0″]Hello,

A review article in the British Medical Journal a month ago, suggested a modern cut-off point of 10 for the PSA. But I think most doctors would probably investigate a 9.

You say you have an enlarged prostate. In my mind that means that you have experienced difficulties in wee-ing. Depending on how bad that problem is, it might have been in your doctor’s mind already to offer you prostate treatment?

I think there is no huge rush to have a prostate biopsy. One modern view is that possible prostate cancer is over-investigated and over-treated, bearing in mind the lack of proven benefit from most types of prostate surgery, and the side-effects of surgical treatment.

I think your best next step is to ask for an MRI scan. This would give a good picture of your prostate size and its regularity. And I suggest repeating the PSA test in a month, to see whether the 9 is steady, – is going down, – or is going up.

I suggest you have whatever surgery you need to give you a decent urine flow, and to prevent you from getting a sudden blockage. If part of this treatment involves removal of prostate tissue, then that might be used as a biopsy sample.

Prostate cancer kills (when it does) mostly by spread to distant parts of the body, and perhaps you should ask now for a whole-body bone scan? Clearly if a bone scan shows spread to be already present, somewhere, then you are *at once* in a different ball-park. If it does not, then that is very reassuring.

I realise that I am telling you what I would do in your position and in the UK, – I am aged 65 and a retired doctor. Clearly that may not be what is best for your case, in India, but it does give you some extra material to discuss with your Consultant. MRI scans and bone-scans may be hard to come by in India.

Best wishes,

retired uk GP.
