Dr. Hasan :

Hello and thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.

Dr. Hasan :

No an abnormality shown on MRI in prostate gland doesn't mean cancer.

Dr. Hasan :

Cancer can never be diagnosed just on MRI findings.

Dr. Hasan :

Can you provide me details about that MRI report.

Dr. Hasan :

I can guide you better this wa.

Dr. Hasan :

way

Customer:

Letter stated mri showed abnormality in mid section of prostate. I have an enlarged prostate. psa7.1 in September. biopsy in January 13 negative.

Dr. Hasan :

So this means that with negative biopsy, you don't have any cancer.

Dr. Hasan :

After negative biopsy why you are stressing yourself for cancer.

Customer:

could biopsy have missed abnormality in mid section of prostate

Dr. Hasan :

It's least likely.

Dr. Hasan :

What is normal reference value of PSA in your report?

Customer:

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

Dr. Hasan :

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.

Dr. Hasan :

Non cancerous prostate enlargment is also very common and PSA can get raised by multiple factors other than cancer, so no worries.

Dr. Hasan :

Any question?
