    Increasing PSA Levels after Radiation

    I am a 64 year old male. I had my Prostate removed in 2015. My PSA Level reached 15.8 in 2016. Radiation was prescribed and completed in 2016. However PSA went from a .23 level to a .56 level (checked in 3 months) to a PSA Level of .98 just recently. My Urologist said if it goes up a third time (Checked again in June, 2018), then we will run tests to determine the next treatment. What are some options in treatment should I be aware of?

    Blood in urine

    A year ago they found blood in my urine and sent me to a urologist. They did another UA, rectal exam, cystoscopy, CT Scan of my abdominal and pelvic area. They said I could have gallstones and fatty liver. There was moderate hydrothropy of the right lobe of my prostrate but everything was normal. I've also had a colonoscopy two years ago with one polyp that surgeon said had no way of being cancer. I've had two CT Scans of my head. 3 chest xrays, numerous blood work and it's all came back....

    High PSA

    My normal PSA has been about 1.4 or so for years. This past December's physical showed a jump to 9.3. Another test at my Urologist 2 weeks later showed it had gone to 10.4. A biopsy has been scheduled. Is this rapid rise in PSA indicative of cancer normally?

    TURP to identify CA

    My dad (67 years) is suffering from high PSA, "huge" prostate, getting up several times at night to pee, sudden urgency when needing to pee, etc.. First doctor suggested TURP, that it will relief the symptoms, and what they remove can be sent to the lab to be checked if CA or benign. So, kind of a 2 in 1 procedure. He is scheduled for Wednesday (for now). A second opinion agreed with the symptoms relief part, but said that it will not properly identify cancerous cells unless it is very....
