Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Your PSA increase is not significant.
And you have BPH which explains the increase well.
Besides you had 2 negative biopsy.
A third one is not needed.
So you can avoid this procedure.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
