Hello and thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.
No an abnormality shown on MRI in prostate gland doesn't mean cancer.
Cancer can never be diagnosed just on MRI findings.
Can you provide me details about that MRI report.
I can guide you better this wa.
Letter stated mri showed abnormality in mid section of prostate. I have an enlarged prostate. psa7.1 in September. biopsy in January 13 negative.
So this means that with negative biopsy, you don't have any cancer.
After negative biopsy why you are stressing yourself for cancer.
could biopsy have missed abnormality in mid section of prostate
It's least likely.
What is normal reference value of PSA in your report?
don't know. urologist suggests a guided biopsy. should I have it and even if positive should I be worried. thank you for your help and advice. wont take up any more of your time. thanks
Thanks a lot for your input. Yes you should go for it if your urologist has advised it but don't worry because having a first negative biopsy makes it likely for the second biopsy to be negative also. So hope for the best.
Non cancerous prostate enlargment is also very common and PSA can get raised by multiple factors other than cancer, so no worries.
