Customer Question

I have been diagnosed 3 straight times with a PSA of around 4.9. My doctor does not do PHI, PCA3 test, but does want to do a biopsy. I am 69 years old and do have an enlarged prostate. What can you recommend for me?

Hi there,

PSA 4.9 without any increase over time does not warrant a biopsy.

You do not have symptoms and also no hematuria I assume.

PHI index should be derived first.

You should discuss with a different urologist if possible.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
