Avatar m tn Have you had primary treatment for prostate cancer? This type of rise would indicate metastatic disease. If this was discovered over routine followup, and you remain symptomless, a retest of your PSA is warranted. Thank you for your question and good luck. Sincerely, Ashutosh (Ash) K.

106886 tn?1281291572 Dear Medhelp, You know I am a long time member of this site. Thank you for all you do for the members. I know you get support from advertisers and I totally understand that I will see advertisements on the forums. I have even clicked on a few of the advertisements to check out their message. However, I have not checked on any ads recently as I am having a difficult time dealing with the newer "moving" ads.
Avatar m tn The only other thing that I can add is that my sister has had surgeries and radiation for breast cancer about 20 or more years ago (she is well now) and my mom had passed away from lung cancer. Please, please respond - I am out of my mind with worry. The internet sites I've checked indicate that my range, at my age, is fairly normal to borderline. Is this correct? Is a biopsy on the prostate absolutely necessary in my case? I am really scared out of my wits.

Avatar n tn Thank you for your question. Biochemical failure after prostatectomy is defined as elevated PSA between 0.2 - 0.4 ng/mL. Depending on the primary therapy and where the disease has extended to, this may warrant the use of radiation therapy in conjunction with hormones. Thanks again for your question. Ash K.

Avatar n tn It is not unreasonable to perform a biopsy for a PSA level of 3.2 at 48 years old. Established risk factors for prostate cancer include african american race and first degree relative with the disease. Furthermore, your urologist may be suggesting a biopsy based on DRE (digital rectal examination) findings.

Avatar f tn I had unprotected sex on the 21st and i am due to get my period sometime after the 31st. Sorry for the graphics, but the sex was pretty rough, and was my first time having sex in a few months. I experienced bleeding the day after, really heavily for like two seconds the second day, and then really light after that and still very very light today (more brownish discharge than blood), a week later.
Avatar m tn A medical writer some years ago recommended repeated aggressive TURPs for reducing tumor size after prostate cancer diagnosis . This was to be a way to avoid the perils of prostate removal or ablation, and while not curing the cancer at least extending the time before metastasis. It made sense if tumor volume in itself mattered. Is this recommendation still kicking around?
Avatar m tn I am 15 almost 16 and am worried since my family has had cancer before or has right now (my mom) and not sure if it can be cancerous and have not told my parents yet so i decided to ask here first if it is nothing serious to worry about. It is not painful but is about the size of a bb pellet. help please?
Avatar m tn There are several options for the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer. These can be stratified into two general categories, hormonal therapy and chemotherapy. It is important to clarify that no treatments can cure advanced prostate cancer. The goal of these treatments is to control the spread and related symptoms. Hormonal therapy, in broad terms, aims to limit the effect of testosterone in driving the spread of prostate cancer. Thank you for your question.
Avatar n tn What is your age, what sort of treatment have you had for prostate cancer, any more details to help me answer your question. In the short of it, a PSA doubling time of one month should be indicative of serious morphological changes in your prostate. With a baseline PSA of 21, I imagine you are already under the care of a urologist. Sincerely, Ashutosh (Ash) K. Tewari, MD www.cornellroboticprostate.org This forum is for information only.

Avatar n tn Hi there, this may not be anything to do with prostate cancer, but it is starting to concern me in case it is. I noticed a few weeks ago a small vibrating sensation at the base of my penis. Like a phone was going of on vibrate mode in my pocket, but when I go to answer I realise it's not a phone. At the start it was very rare, but it has been increasing. Today it is almost constant and is rythmic like breathing, but if I hold my breath it continues.
Avatar m tn Do I have any options other than hormonal treatment down the line at an older age? I would not want radiation if the cancer?(if any) cannot be located.
Avatar n tn t recieved my period since september 2008, and its now april 2009. i have a large lump right under my nipple and i think i just found another lump under my breast that is small but kinda sore. i was told that i am slightly amnemic, but i've been trying to be as healthy as possible... im just really worried and i want to know whats going on with me.. does anyone have any ideas or advice?
Avatar f tn It is common for many young women to have a breast lesion similar to the one you describe. In medical parlance, it is called a fibroadenoma. It is sometimes called a "breast mouse" because of its mobility. Please dont worry about it. However, this should be a good opportunity for you to learn about breast health. Please surf the internet to access sites that describe the correct way to perform a breast self examination. Perform this every month.
Avatar f tn My son has a MacBook Pro (laptop) and it is fast enough that he uses it as a gaming computer. The graphics would stink if it wasn't fast... I LOVE my MacMini, and I'll never go back to a PC.

Avatar n tn Lumps that do not hurt when you press down on them, and are in and around the lobules/stroma of the breast are cancer lumps. Breast cancer occurs in the lymph system. Certain moles also indicate cancer. Melanoma with asymmetrical and uneven flat edges are cancer moles. Melanoma with symmetrical, even edges are noncancerous moles. Here is a link for cancerous moles. (https://www.google.com/search?
